Membership

The BRC offers a paid, registered membership option, which provides many benefits (see list below). However, please note that it is not necessary to be a registered member to participate in most club activities. Memberships range from individual to family to student levels for 1 or 5 years.

Membership fees are used for expenses such as the club’s insurance costs through the Road Runners Club of America.

The BRC is involved in organizing and conducting the Belleville Main Street Marathon and St. Clair County Law Day 5K and Kids Run and is involved in Belleville’s adopt-a-trail program, the Belleville Chili Cookoff, and St. Clair County’s Get Up and Go campaign; the club offers 5K and marathon training programs; and the club participates annually in the River to River Relay in Southern Illinois.

The BRC meets for group runs several times a week. The club also holds regular meetings, which are open to all members and the public. Click here for the BRC calendar of events.

Bylaws

On March 12, 2012, all four of the BRC founders and a few others got together and adopted a set
of bylaws. By doing so, we were able to gain acceptance to the Road
Runners
Club of America
(RRCA)
and will allow incorporation, not for profit status, insurance, etc.

Here is a copy of our bylaws: BRC
