You cannot access the Members Only forum until you pay your dues. If problems persist, send us a message using the contact us form.

Click on the event calendar to see the various events. Many will be group runs, local races which many of us participate in, and pure social events like dinners, parties, or drinks. See the message board for additional information.
4.  How is the website updated?
The website is updated by volunteer web admins. We are not perfect but you can always get our attention by an email to webmaster@thereservoirdogs.com.
5.  How safe is personal information?
Posting personal information on the message board like phone numbers and addresses is not allowed. The board is open to the public so you if you need to contact an individual member and don't know their email address, you should use the private messaging feature on the board.

If you have a photo that you think will be good for the website, email it to webmaster@thereservoirdogs.com with a suggested caption

8.  I don't see my race history when I search under my name
First, you must request that your name is searchable. To do that, email webmaster@thereservoirdogs.com. Also, if you are new and haven't run any races under the TRD flag, you won't see any results.
Membership
1.  How do I become a member?
Joining is easy. Just start showing up for runs or events. To request more information, click on the "Membership Info" link on the left.
2.  What if I don't want to run a marathon?
We do not pressure anyone to run a marathon. In fact we don't care if you ever race, the idea is to have fun and reach your running goals, whatever they may be.
3.  I am a pretty good runner, you guys sound too laid back for me.
We have runners of all abilities and goals. If you are an elite runner and want to be challenged by your teammates on a daily basis, then we are probably not the club for you. However, we have several Boston Marathon qualifiers (both men and women) on our team and many of our members race shorter distances at or below 6:00 pace (men) and 7:30 (women).
Group Runs
1.  Are there any speed qualifications?
Runners of all abilities are welcome to any one of our workouts. Most members run between 6 and 10 minutes per mile. All of our runs are 4 miles or longer. There are four group runs a week, and attendance varies from a handful to a crowd. With a larger turnout, we typically break into smaller groups according to pace so that no one is left running by themselves.
2.  I am training for a marathon, do you have long runs?
Since most of our members, who run marathons, run fall marathons. We hold scheduled long runs in the late summer and fall. During other times of the year our members usually incorporate our Saturday Group Run into their long runs. It is typically pretty easy to persuade a fellow member to "go long" with you.
3.  How far do you run on the group runs?
Our standard distance for the group runs ranges from about 4 to 7 miles. Members often add or subtract from the standard run based on fitness or current running goals. For example, a runner just coming back from an injury might cut off the top and bottom of the park by crossing at the 72nd and 102nd transverses, reducing a 6-mile run to 4 miles.
