ORRC’s  free recognition program for any club member who runs or walks 1,200 miles in one year (averaging about 100/month, or about 25/week). The purpose is meant to be a challenge and motivational tool, and we anticipate about 10% of club members achieving the actual 1200 miles in one year.

Participants who complete 1200 miles in one year receive a jacket the first year, and patches to add to the jacket in subsequent years.  You must be a member of ORRC to participate, and be prepared to track your walking and running miles and report them to the club at the end of each month

Then, submit your monthly mile totals to the coordinator at 1200club@orrc.net, who will keep tallies for all individuals. Annual ongoing totals of all participants will be published in the Oregon Distance Runner (ODR) throughout the year.

  • The purpose is meant to be a challenge that we anticipate about 10% of club members achieve.
  • There is no charge but participants must be current ORRC members.
  • Anyone who completes 1200 miles in one year receives a jacket, and in later years receives a patch to add to the jacket.

Rules:

  • Participants must enter by March1st No more registrations will be accepted after that date.
  • Each month participants submit their monthly totals to the club coordinator by e-mail to 1200club@orrc.net who keeps tallies for all individuals.

What Miles Count?

  • Races or training miles
  • Running or Walking miles

What Miles do NOT count?

  • Nothing translated from another sport into miles (e.g. cycling, swimming, or ellipticals
  • Running in the pool
  • “steps” counted on a pedometer during the course of a day that are not part of a standard run or walk (so wearing a pedometer during the day to count up to 10,000 steps does not include steps counted while walking around the office or house)
