The Running Club provides Cadets with a strong community of runners through numerous group runs during the week, as Cadets train together to compete in races across the country. In 2023, the club sent three teams to compete in the Army Ten Miler in Washington D.C., and we are always looking to grow so will be sending four teams of 25 runners in fall 2024! Another highlight is racing the Holy Half Marathon on Notre Dame’s campus, which nearly 40 Cadets compete in annually. Other past races Cadets have participated in include the Boston Marathon, Chicago Marathon, and local races in the South Bend area. Running Club fosters mentorship and camaraderie while strengthening bonds within the Battalion through group runs. We work to increase fitness and build future officers ready to run, fight, win, and set the standard high for their soldiers.
