Thanks to all members who completed the CRC membership survey, which was open from November 2019 – February 2020. Participation rate was about 5%, and here is what we learned based on members who participated:
Over half of the respondents have been members of the club for less than 3 years and 41% are under 39 years old. More males than females responded.
The majority of our members selected the half marathon as their favorite race distance. The most cited reason for joining CRC was “to be part of a larger organization that supports my beliefs and interests” and the main reason for running was “to relieve stress and achieve mental wellness.”
Social opportunities and race discounts tied for what people see as the primary benefits of CRC. The most popular events were the Winter Classic, socials & group runs.
New merchandise is available and thanks to your responses we will be offering hats, T-shirts, and singlets.
There is a lot of interest in the Free Timed 5K, and we had planned to offer that every third Tuesday of the month. With the current Stay at Home ordinance, we must postpone that, but it will be re-implemented as soon as we are able.
Write-in survey votes indicate that most people are very happy with the club and would not change a thing. We have been working hard to highlight members of all paces and lifestyles by doing member profiles, photos, and call outs on social media. We are always open to your suggestions and new ways to best serve our club.
