Red Jackets

How do I earn a Red Jacket?

Our club jacket is a red micro-fiber shell with a lining and carries the club name and logo on the front. The member's name or nickname can be custom embroidered on the front. This jacket is a member benefit provided to members who fulfill the requirements of the 1000 Mile Club or the Extra Mile Club

1000 Mile Club

  • Complete at least 1000 miles of running or walking during a single calendar year for the first time
  • Accumulate 10 volunteer points within the prior two years
  • Be a current member in good standing during the years the miles and volunteering were completed and signed up for membership by January 31st the year the jacket is awarded

Extra Mile Club

  • Accumulate 30 volunteer points within a single year
  • Be a current member in good standing during the year the volunteer points were earned and signed up for membership by January 31st the year the jacket is awarded

Mileage

Mileage must be verifiable from a personal running/walking log and reported by January 15th of the following year. A form for reporting mileage and volunteer points will be provided in the December newsletter or can be obtained from Jennifer Bachelder at jmbachelder@gmail.com.

Volunteer Points

Volunteer points are earned via the system laid out in the current Handbook. Members must keep track of their own points and turn them in annually before January 15th. If earning a Red Jacket for the first time, points from the previous two years may be reported.

Patches

A variety of patches are available for the Red Jacket in future years, and you can find a listing of them in the current Handbook.

Members of the 1000-MILE CLUB who complete 1000 miles or more during subsequent calendar years after earning their jacket will receive mileage chevrons that may be sewn on their jacket sleeve. Chevrons are awarded in 100-mile increments from 1000 and upward. To earn a chevron, 5 volunteer points also need to be earned during that year.

  • Red chevrons will be given for mileage designated as run or run/walk accumulated within a calendar year.
  • A blue chevron will be given for mileage designated as walk only accumulated within a calendar year (started in 2022).
  • Both of these could be earned in a single year if both totals are 1000 miles or more.
