Train at Another Level

Elite: Welcome

ABOUT DTC ELITE

Dayton Track Club's Elite Program is a high-level running club, designed to provide top open, masters, grand masters, and senior Dayton runners with the support they need to excel.

Founded in 2009 as Runners Plus Elite, (rebranded to "Dayton Track Club Elite" in 2020) the running group has been a resource and staple of the Ohio elite running and racing community. It provides a powerful network of top athletes, discounts and gear, and organized runs.

The club has had an Olympian, five Olympic Trials qualifiers, and collegiate All-Americans.

Goals:

  • Provide relevant information about events, races, and group runs.

  • Curate opportunities to connect with training partners and experience camaraderie within the Dayton community.

  • Provide quality team gear essentials, perks, and participation incentives.

Join us to reach your full potential after college.
