Marathon

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!

Dues: $40 per year
