Club Policies

Standards

Club Running does not hold tryouts. Before joining Club Running you should be able to run a minimum of 3 miles at 9 minute per mile pace. This policy is to ensure that runners are not left behind on runs.

 

Club Registration

In order to be added to the Club Running roster, you need to:

  1. Pay dues. Dues are $20 for non-racers and $50 for racers. Dues may be paid in cash or check made out to Northeastern University. Dues paid in the form of cash or check must be within an envelope labeled with your name. Racing dues may also be paid online on MyNeu.
  2. Fill out the Club Running survey
  3. Complete your DoSportsEasy forms

If you do not do all three of these things by the stated deadline you will not be added to the Club Running roster. If you are not on the roster you are not permitted to run or race with Club Running, and any dues you paid will be taken as a donation to the team.

 

Race Scratches

If you either fail to show up for a race you signed up for or scratch yourself from a race you have signed up for after signups are due without a valid reason such as personal injury or family emergency, you are responsible for the cost of your race entry. Race entries may be paid in either cash or check made out to Northeastern University. Following two race scratches without valid reasons, you are suspended from racing for the remainder of the season.

 

Uniforms

If you borrow a uniform from the Club Running team to race, and either do not give that uniform back within a week or lose it entirely, you are responsible for the cost of the uniform: $30.

 

Injury

If you are significantly injured or sick you should not practice or race until you are well. If you become unable to run while out on a run or in a race, you create a hazardous situation for both yourself and your team.

 

Misconduct

If you misconduct yourself while at practice or a race you will at minimum be suspended from Club Running for the remainder of the season. Misconduct includes behaving in an unsafe manner, disrespecting fellow club members, and representing the team or school in a negative way, and is up to the discretion of the captains.
