A Standard (Comp Team Entry, Team Gear & Fleet Feet Event Management Race Entries)
Our A Standard membership was created to support a competitive group of young adult runners with the opportunity to receive coaching, team gear and local race entries all free of charge. In addition, these young racers will be a part of a team that is committed to the greater good of the running community through volunteering and they will find a sense of camaraderie as they move into their post-collegiate running career. You must meet one of these times on a certified course within the last year.
