MEMBERSHIP CAN PAY FOR ITSELF – AND MORE
Your membership goes a long way in helping to promote running and fitness in the Asheville area. Our members includes kids age 5-85, elites and walkers, participants and supporters. We’re an inclusive club that is heavily involved in the community and other non-profit organizations. And we provide information and resources to help you make the most of your involvement with the running and fitness community.
But the icing on the cake is that an Asheville Track Club membership has tangible financial benefits that can more than offset the modest cost of membership. The compelling list of benefits includes discounts at local and online merchants, races and a great newsletter. When considering how much a runner or fitness walker spends on apparel and accessories each year, the discounts you enjoy as a member of the track club can more than cover the cost of your membership. Let’s take a closer look.
With discounts ranging from 10% to 20% at local and online merchants (Jus’ Running, FootRx Asheville, Diamond Brand Outdoors and Runningwarehouse.com) Asheville Track Club members can save an average of 15% on apparel and accessories. Here’s a typical example to demonstrate the annual savings:
|Item Purchased||Retail Cost||Average 15% Discount|
|2 Pair Shoes @ $100 each||$200||$30.00|
|2 Pair Shorts @ $25 each||$50||$7.50|
|2 Tops @ $25 each||$50||$7.50|
|6 Pair Socks @ $8 each||$48||$7.20|
|Total Annual Savings||$52.20|
|Track Club Membership Cost||$20.00|
