ADR Members celebrating post-race victories.

The Ashtabula Distance Runners Club (ADR) formally known as the North Coast Road Racing Grand Prix is entering its 23rd year of existence as a club with a schedule of races in Ashtabula County. Our primary goal is to encourage health and fitness among our members and those participating in our events.  The group started in 1992 with five (5) road races followed with a lunch buffet at the Ashtabula YMCA. Over the years the number of races has grown to more than thirty (30) with dozens of charities raising money through their individual efforts and serving as a point system for overall winners.  Anyone participating in six (6) or more of the 30 plus races receives a free dinner and an award at the end of the year.  Achilles Running Shop is the current sponsor for the ADR.  Many runners have competed in the Ashtabula Distance Runners Club and gone on to excellence in college and on the national road racing circuit.  We urge you to consider joining with us this year.
