Run the Door: Door County's Running Club
If you've participated or watched any of the exciting Door County marathons, 5Ks, or 10Ks, it's hard to miss the enthusiastic members that make up Run the Door, Door County's very own running club! Run the Door is an open-membership group of running lovers and enthusiasts who encourage and support each other, whether it's while training or during the races.
Run the Door is free and easy to join, and fun to be involved in! Although the 2015 season is now closed, don't hesitate to sign up in 2016! Registration will be open starting on January 1, 2016. All you have to do is send an email message containing your name, hometown, gender, age, and email address to: email@example.com. New in 2015, Run the Door has added a separate division for runner who live out of Door County!
Once you're signed up with Run the Door, you score points on their running race circuit. You can score points in three different ways each time you participate in a Door County race on the circuit.
1. Score 10 points just for participating – no matter what place you take!
2. Score 3, 2, or 1 points if you take first, second, or third respectively in your age group.
3. Score 10 points if you are one of the circuit race directors or on a circuit race committee.
The Door County Silent Sports Alliance keeps track of everyones points. The top ten men and top ten women at the end of the year will receive the distinctive Liz Butler Pottery Awards. The top three men and top three women residing out of Door County will also win. Remaining registered runners will also be eligible for random prizes at the end of year Run the Door recognition dinner party.
Run the Door apparel is available for purchase at all race events, and Run the Door team photos are taken at each race. Check their website in early 2016 for race schedules.
