Hundred of us, donate, drive, sprint?

We added eight new Club members in the first week of winter term, which puts us over 100 for the school year already!

We’ll have an off-the-track workout this Tuesday (and Friday?) at our regular 3pm time. We’re still planning to do our first track session on Tuesday, January 22, at South Eugene HS at 4:30pm. That’s the day after the MLK school holiday. Do we need an alternative time on Tuesdays for a track session?

Have you made your $50 donation yet? It covers the whole school year. What a deal!

Wanna be a van driver?

Wanna do sprint workouts? We still have two turf fields and a square track on campus.

We’re not ready for indoor mile sign-ups yet. Soon


We need van drivers! This is your chance to help the Club and become a key player…

Who we are. What we do!

UO Running Club gives students the chance to get together to run, train and race. Most of our sessions are steady runs. A couple of days each week we offer harder training sessions (intervals, repetitions, hills, tempo runs, cruise intervals).

The club is coached by Tom Heinonen, a member of the US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Hall of Fame who coached the University of Oregon women for nearly three decades. In his time coaching the women, he transformed the team from a young program into an NCAA powerhouse. He retired in 2003 to start the club and has been coaching it since.

In the Fall, we compete in collegiate cross country races throughout Oregon, then finish our season at the NIRCA Championships, where we face other college clubs. In the Spring, we enter in collegiate track meets. Several of our runners earn the opportunity to race at Hayward Field each spring. There are road races throughout the year.

We have a wide range of talent and commitment levels, from recreational runners to All-Americans.

Club members receive an e-mailed workout schedule for the following week every Sunday. There is no fee to join the club.

All running sessions are optional. To join, just show up to one of the practices or contact one of us.

The Running Club is a great way to get together with students and to enjoy running!
