The Ocean Running Club (ORC) was formed by a group of
running friends in the late 1970's and formally became
a Running Club in May 1980. It is a family oriented
athletic club that promotes and encourages running
and walking as a competitive sport and as a means
of healthful exercise.
Our members, about 350 of them, range in age from 8 to
80. We sponsor a
variety of events throughout the year, and the common
thread through all of our events is FUN! We like to
run hard, we like to compete, but above all else,
we like to have fun together!
The ORC is a non-profit organization and holds
membership in the Road Runners Club of America.
ORC Member benefits include reduced pre-registration
rates for club sponsored events, a monthly
newsletter, discounts at area stores, a
year-end awards banquet, club meetings with
guest speakers, and the camaraderie of a friendly
group of running or walking partners for racing
