The Wildcat Running Club


        To keep up with all Wildcat Running Club related information, make sure to follow the Wildcat Running Club Facebook Page.

        The Wildcat Running Club is comprised of University of Arizona undergrads, graduate students,and non-students that share an interest in running. The goal of our club is to promote the health and fitness among our members through the art of running. We accept runners of all speeds and experience. We are a large group so no matter your ability, you will likely have someone to run with. The schedule for our workouts will be posted on a weekly basis on the Facebook page. You know your ability better than we do, so if you want to run more or less than what we have planned for the day, that is up to you. We do not hold tryouts or have mandatory requirements for attending practice. If you want a group of people to run with in local 5k’s, 10k’s, and Half or Full Marathons, come check us out!

        Starting this semester, we will run with the Workout Group of Tucson every Tuesday and Thursday. The Workout Group (WOG) is a group of local runners who host speed-oriented workouts. We are coordinating with WOG to schedule workouts that will have you at peak performance in mid-November. By paying dues for the Wildcat Running Club, you will gain access to all workouts with WOG.

        On Friday mornings we will meet in front of the Rec at 7:00am and lift weights together. Starting the Week of 9/5, we will have the Smart Moves Studio rented out for our club for every Friday morning of the semester from 7-8:00am.

        On Sunday mornings we will host trail runs and hikes in the local parks around Tucson. In the past, we have visited places like Mt. Lemmon, Saguaro National Park, Sabino Canyon, Ventana Canyon, 7 Falls, Peppersaus Caves, and more! We will carpool at 6:30am in the parking lot behind the Rec center and we will typically be back around 10-11:00am.

        In Spring of 2017, the Wildcat Running Club will host an annual charity 5k. This year we are planning to make donations to the Autism Society of Southern Arizona. The 5k will be hosted at Reid Park and we have plenty of volunteer opportunities for interested members. Throughout the years, we have raised thousands of dollars for charity and we are looking forward to a record breaking year.


Semester - $35

Year - $60

        All of the necessary forms to join can be found in the Resources tab. Dues must be accompanied by forms before they can be accepted. We accept new runners throughout the year. You do not have to worry about paying and turning in forms before you run with us. Come join us for a run and see how you like it!


Hope To See You Out There!
