Manchester Running Company’s racing team is supported locally by FleetFeet West Hartford and Select Physical Therapy. MRC/Fleet Feet competes in races around the region and as a team on the USA Track & Field-Connecticut Road Racing Grand Prix Circuit. The racing team is open to all abilities and we are happy to have you!
Anyone in the MRC Running Club is more than welcome to join the racing team! Just send us an email and we’ll get you affiliated with our racing team. Prize money is earned through many races throughout the year. We use this prize money to support the club, pay future USATF fees, purchase gear and apparel, and for those who qualify, prize money is also distributed to those individuals. The racing team is simply an extension of your MRC membership and is available at no extra cost. We will happily cover your first year of USATF membership after you compete in two events. Subsequent years, prize money is used to cover USATF fees.
Because we like to challenge ourselves, and we fancy ourselves competitive, there is also opportunity for additional perks. These perks are very light and not anything to write home about, but it is something. We will provide a free MRC singlet to any club member achieving the following standards while a member of MRC:
