Coached by Professor Rod Anderson, North Central’s co-ed running club includes 22 active student members.  Races are open to all members.

The club’s purpose is to provide both competitive and non-competitive running opportunities.  Runners train together as a team, with several scheduled training sessions available throughout the week.  Runners may select both competitive and non-competitive goals, and training schedules are used to accommodate both groups of student-athletes.  An expanded schedule of races is anticipated for the Fall 2020 season.

“Our club athletics program is another step in bolstering the student life experience on campus,” said Dr. David Roland Finley, North Central’s president.  “Our running club complements the outstanding academic programs at the college, creating a more holistic, vibrant environment for our students.”

North Central Michigan College is an open-door community college based in Petoskey, with additional locations offering classes and services in Cheboygan and Gaylord. North Central’s mission is to provide educational, economic and cultural opportunities for student learning, personal growth and community improvement.  North Central is an Achieving the Dream Leader College and a Veteran Friendly School.
