About the 1200 Club
ORRC’s free recognition program for any club member who runs or walks 1,200 miles in one year (averaging about 100/month, or about 25/week). The purpose is meant to be a challenge and motivational tool, and we anticipate about 10% of club members achieving the actual 1200 miles in one year.
Participants who complete 1200 miles in one year receive a jacket the first year, and patches to add to the jacket in subsequent years. You must be a member of ORRC to participate, and be prepared to track your walking and running miles and report them to the club at the end of each month
Give yourself a challenge and join the 1200 club!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the program.
Over the five years since we started the 1200 Club we’ve had over 513 ORRC members participate, with 347 of them earning jackets. And of those individuals, 33 have reached 1200 miles in all five years.

What is it?
The 1200 Club is a recognition program for any club member who runs or walks 1,200 miles in one year (100/month, or about 25/week).
The year measures January 1 through December 31 mileage.
The purpose is meant to be a challenge that we anticipate about 10% of club members achieve.
There is no charge but participants must be current ORRC members.
Anyone who completes 1200 miles in one year receives a jacket, and in later years receives a patch to add to the jacket.
Participants must enter by March 1. No registrations will be accepted after that date.
Each month participants submit their monthly totals to the club coordinator by e-mail to email@example.com who keeps tallies for all individuals.
Monthly totals are due no later than one month after the end of the month they are submitting (e.g. February miles are due by the end of March).
Yearly ongoing totals of all participants will be published in the Oregon Distance Runner (ODR) throughout the year.
What Miles Count?
- Races or training miles
- Running or Walking miles
What Miles do NOT count?
- Nothing translated from another sport into miles (e.g. cycling, swimming, or ellipticals)
- Running in the pool
- “steps” counted on a pedometer during the course of a day that are not part of a standard run or walk (so wearing a pedometer during the day to count up to 10,000 steps does not include steps counted while walking around the office or house)
Feedback from Current and Prior Participants
“Here’s what happened… I finished the 2015 with a little time to spare. In that time and the first 3 days of the new year I found it extremely hard to maintain the discipline. Three days into the year my wife suggested we both sign up for it and magically the discipline is back.”
“Thank you! I am thrilled to have earned the jacket. A non-running injury last January cancelled my marathon plans. Being able to set another goal for the year — earning the jacket — really kept me going.”
“Thank you for managing the “club”. It gets me out the door some days!”
