Oakland Track Club is a strong and supportive community of athletes based upon the shared values of training hard, mutual support, and chasing improvement. The club provides opportunities for regular structured group workouts, a coaching and development program, team races in a range of events, and regular social gatherings with other local runners.
Of course, anyone is welcome to come out to our group runs and see what we're all about! The best way to find out if Oakland Track Club is something you'd like to be a part of is to show up, say hi, and run with us!

Race Registration Funding
For our members for whom racing represents a financial hardship, we provide financial aid for race registration, and are expanding our efforts to also include travel stipends. We believe that racing is an experience in which everyone should be able to participate regardless of financial situation.
*Starting in 2023, we will be offering memberships on a sliding scale, and $75 is the amount where OTC breaks even. OTC membership is open to everyone regardless of wealth or income; we ask members to pay an amount that is meaningful to them.
Choose the dues that fit your circumstances
We ask that members contribute an amount that is meaningful to them. A guideline that we use is what you would pay for a new pair of running shoes or a dinner out for your family.
Many members find that they would like to contribute an amount between these numbers. If that's you, please choose the lower amount and then donate the rest here.
