Ro Club Maraton is the first club for amateur marathoners based in Romania. The club was founded in the spring of 2008 by a group of runners from Bucharest, and other Romanian cities, as a non-profit organization with goal of promoting long distance running as a sport for everybody.
The 14 founding members developed the club as a way to get individuals with similar interests and hobbies working together. The organization is open to anyone interested in joining, regardless of whether you are a professional or an amateur; if you have just started running, or have been at it for many years; have world-class or beginner-level results; or even whether you have run a marathon or other long distance race before, or not. The main eligibility criteria for acceptance to the club are that you are passionate about running, and have the desire to bring a personal contribution in promoting running activities in Romania.
As a non-profit organization, club activities are based on volunteerism. Anyone interested dedicating their time and efforts is welcome to join, but should consider their availability for being involved in organizing club activities, promotions, and so on. In other words, whoever would like to become a member of Ro Club Maraton, participate in club activities, and take part in competitions under the club brand, do so mainly because they love to run and have an attitude of camaraderie. The potential material support offered by the club (sponsorships, price discounts, barter trades, etc) are benefits each club member can enjoy, considering their personal involvement in club activities.
· Meetings and communication with people sharing the same passion for running;
· Group training;
· Coaching for the new or less experienced by seasoned runners;
· A faster basic orientation to the science and practice of running;
· An official t-shirt and club badge, received at registration;
· Sponsorships for accommodations during competitions;
· Networking with other running clubs from other countries;
· Price discounts for club members offered for specific products and services, e.g. tailor-made sports equipment, dietary supplements, accommodation and medical assistance;
· Price discounts for group participation in competitions organized in Romania and abroad.
