We know how hard it can be to connect with other people who share your interests and goals; for distance runners, it can be especially challenging. How many times have you tried to tell a friend about your quest to run a race in all 50 states, only to be dismissed with, "You're crazy, why would you want to do that?" We laugh, but after a while, it gets discouraging. Wouldn't it be nice to talk to someone who said, "Wow, me too!"?
While we do agree that we're all a little crazy, we wanted to make it easier to find those people who understood our brand of "crazy." Some clubs offer an option for those running marathons in all 50 states; some provide a choice for half-marathoners. Until now, there hasn't been a club that welcomed ALL distance runners who share the 50-state goal. We're here to change that.
At The Road to 50, we believe that running (or walking) the 50 states is an amazing challenge and worthy goal, no matter the distance. While our clubs are set up by distance (5K, 10K, 20K, 25K, 40K, 50K, 100K, 50-mile, 100-mile, and beyond) to help you meet your individual goals, our exclusive social network and forum bring all members together, so you can share tips, ask questions, plan meetups, and get to know people running any and all distances.
As a Roadie, you'll have access to all our exciting features, whether you choose to join for a year or a lifetime. You'll get a unique Roadie Number that'll be yours for life, access to the social network and forum, great discounts on races and merchandise, our quarterly e-newsletter, and more! When you reach your 50-state goal, we even reward you with your choice of a stylish custom jacket or a one-of-a-kind custom trophy, so you can let everyone know about your incredible accomplishment!
