heard about the club but I don’t know anybody there, what do I need to do?
only thing you need to do is show at Jack Quinn’s Pub at on any Tuesday and be prepared to
run or walk 5K.No need to feel
like an outsider, just approach any runner if you would like to get the
scoop.We pride ourselves in being
a very open and approachable group.
not a fast runner, can I still come?
of the unique aspects of Jack Quinn’s Running Club is the diversity of
our members.We attract everyone
from new runners and walkers to recreational and elite athletes.In addition, the club is family
friendly, feel free to bring your kids.
much does it cost?
Quinn’s Running Club is absolutely free of charge and there are no
obligations.Just show up and run
or walk.After the run, participants
are entitled to Odell beer specials.Participate in ten runs and you’ll
become a “shirted member.”(You’ll
be given a free Jack
Quinn’s Running Club shirt)
everything free?Who pays for it?
running club is free to runners thanks to the support of our sponsors.They provide us with shelter,
shirts, shwag, cheap beer, etc. and we support their businesses.Please support our sponsors and check
out the special
deals that they offer to Jack Quinn’s Runners.
does the running club meet at a bar?
club meets at a pub because it provides a social environment that is more
inviting, less intimidating, and more social for our runners.But most importantly, they have beer.
drinking beer negate the positive effects of running?
we maintain that running negates the adverse effects of drinking beer.
you take attendance?
take attendance primarily so that we can award runners a shirt on their 10th
attendance.We continue to take
attendance for shirted runners because we like to show off our stats and
keep track of member
attendance totals for display on our website.This creates some friendly competition
between our runners and gives us the capability to give awards for special
mile marks in the future.
attended 3 times but when I checked in last week it only showed 2.Can you adjust this?
we operate on the honor system.The easiest way to get your attendance adjusted is to inform the
attendance taker of the error the next time you run with us.They will simply make a note and you
should see that it will be corrected for the following week.
can I get a shirt?
are “Shirted” on their 10th attendance.We hold a “Shirting” ceremony after
each run at approximately .
visiting from out of town and will not be able to participate in the required number of
runs.Can I buy a shirt?
only way that a shirt can be obtained is to earn it by participating in the required number of
runs.This is the agreement that
we have with our sponsors and we cannot make any exceptions.
/ damaged my shirt.Can you give me
this point in time there is no way to obtain a second shirt.The shirts are “free” to the club but our
sponsors have to pay for them and we have agreed to award only 1 shirt per
runner.At some point in the
future we may be able to provide replacement shirts for sale.Check back, we will update if and when
we are able to do so.
