The UNC Marathon Team is a welcoming community of runners from all backgrounds and experience levels which anyone can join and train with. Whether they are just trying to keep in shape or train for the Boston Marathon, all who join will have the opportunity to improve and be an engaged member of our team. If members are racing during the semester, then we have races chosen by Leadership which the training schedules are centered around and the team run together. We are an officially recognized university club team and registered USATF competitive club.

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?new_usatf_member_club_logo
