Information for prospective members:
When a marathoner has completed a valid marathon in 10
different US states the eligibility status will have been met. After
submitting an application
with proof of completion, it will be verified by the membership
committee. Each member shall retain some information to
substantiate each event, such as: a finisher's certificate, published event results
(www.marathonguide.com, result card, result book, newspaper, etc.), race bib number AND medal (both required for this option).
As soon as we receive and process your
application, we will send you a welcome packet with information about the club.
Email your name, state,
& email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
so that we will be looking for your application.
The annual membership fee of $10 is used for periodic newletters,
finisher trophies, quarterly reunions, and club related expenses. Make checks
payable to the 50 States Marathon Club. There are no paid
employees. All club support is provided by volunteers. If you would like to
help, please contact Lois Berkowitz, president. email@example.com
