The University of North Carolina Marathon Team
Welcome: Summer Break!
The UNC Marathon Team is an officially recognized university club team and registered USATF competitive club geared
toward training for and competing in road races up to the marathon distance. As a club, we travel to compete in one marathon/half marathon each semester. Additionally, club members are encouraged to compete or volunteer for other local road races throughout the year!If you are interested in long distance running and fitness then this is the club for you! Runners of all levels are welcome to join. There are no cuts. Just bring some water, clothes, shoes, and a good attitude!

Reasons to Join:
The UNC Marathon Team strives to create a supportive environment to enable all of its members to achieve their individual and team goals. Training for a half-marathon or marathon may seem daunting. Working together, we overcome the intimidation of these challenges and make it possible to attain positive results.
Many of our members had run competitively or recreationally prior to joining the UNC Marathon Team. Members have also joined with a background from other sports that require endurance. Our team is made up of individuals who look for a challenge beyond that of other distance races. Prospective members often have run shorter distance races in the past and are seeking a new challenge. By running a marathon, you become one of a relatively elite group of runners in the world. It is often a life goal to run a marathon. Why not achieve this goal now?
