55 Years & Running!
The Traverse City Track Club was established in 1962. Founder George Kuhn started the club with a once per week Wednesday evening race during the summer. Anyone who came to run became a member. To this day the event continues and is called the Summer Series.
The TC Track Club board is comprised of men and women from the community, all sharing a common love for running. The board meets quarterly with additional meetings as needed. Each board member has a unique role. In addition to the executive board, At-Large Directors oversee club membership, equipment management, Director of Bayshore Marathon of Races, newsletters, the Summer Series, and marketing. Each board member serves a two year term.
The TC Track Club also has a Charitable Gifts Committee. Members of this committee come from a variety of backgrounds. A minimum of two board members serve with five additional members of the community. This committee works with the Community Foundation reviewing grant and scholarship applications and making recommendations to the board for charitable giving.
Mission - Northern Michigan’s running club promotes, supports and encourages running, racewalking and walking as a means to promote health, enhanced fitness, family recreation and competition for all individuals.
