Team membership includes training programs modified for beginning, intermediate, and advanced runners, and includes long weekend runs with water stops supervised by experienced training coordinators. In addition to the training program, team members will enjoy other benefits, including use of an exclusive race day warm-up and reunite area, a team shirt, race day transportation to and from Northwest Indiana, a weekly e-newsletter containing training tips and team updates throughout the training season, a pasta dinner and post-race party during race weekend, and discounts on Northwest Indiana hotels for out-of-town runners and their families.
