Rolling Thunder Road Runners Club was formed in 1998 as part of the Rolling Thunder Special Needs Program. We are a member of the USA Track & Field Assn. Our aim is to train athletes with developmental disabilities to compete in mainstream running events. By running our athletes earn respect and self esteem, which will help them in everyday life. We need coaches to help train and to pace our athletes in running events.

Our schedule includes about 20 to 30 events a year in which we compete. As our second years draws to the end we are proud to have grown so rapidly, we have about 75 athletes in thraining with the club, and new faces are always showing up.
