Plea for Assistance

For 50 years the Oak Ridge Track Club has been actively involved in the community – sponsoring everything from half-marathons to 5K’s, kids’ triathlons to summer programs, and fun runs to organized workouts. Although the club continues to organize activities, times are changing – membership has fallen off and volunteers are nearly non-existent.
With that in mind, the board and officers of the club have decided to make an appeal to the community at-large in order to determine whether the club should continue its role in the community, or to simply dissolve.
We are asking members and folks in and around the community at large to visit our website ( and our Facebook page ( and consider whether the Oak Ridge Track Club should continue serving in the greater Oak Ridge community. If so, we would like to hear from you. If you value our mission to support the running community and sponsor running events, please become a member, a volunteer, an officer, or a member of the board. We can only succeed if you participate!
Please let us know your thoughts about this issue by Jan. 1, 2019. That is when the club will meet to determine its fate. New energetic members and volunteers would certainly be welcome.
Please contact us via email at if you are available to help serve the Oak Ridge Running and Fitness Community.
Thank you,
Board of Directors – Oak Ridge Track Club
