Liberty Athletic Club Divisions
The Opens Team
The Open Team is Liberty’s group of under-40 runners. We are diverse in our abilities, goals, and approaches to running and training. Some of our Open runners are highly competitive athletes who regularly place in or win races; others enjoy training and racing at a more recreational level. Members of the Liberty Open Team participate regularly in individual races ranging from track events to marathons, and we also compete as a team in relays, cross country, and road races several times a year. We juggle careers, families, and running, and support each other even though our individual goals may differ. Of course, we all share one thing in common: our passion for running!
We also share a deep respect for our accomplished Masters runners, many of whom — in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and beyond — are at the top of their game. We learn from them: how they successfully navigated the many competing demands that we now face; their approach to smart training to prevent injury after decades of running. We are proud to continue the Liberty tradition of women across the decades running — and thriving — side by side
The Masters Team
The Masters Team is a group of inspirational runners who have achieved amazing things on and off the race course. The Masters Team is a competitive, fun team, with a spirit and bond that has grown over the years. Runners on the Masters Team work to challenge themselves, to get faster, to stay fast, and to run with friends or as part of a community. The diversity of the Masters Team stretch from mothers, business women, college and life long learners, professors, lawyers, retirees, etc… all are welcome to run with the Masters Team. In their off time, the Masters Team can be found at regular Liberty events, parties, and brunches. The Masters Team is more than just a running team, its a group of inspired women running because they can!
The Masters Team applauds and celebrates the achievements of Liberty’s younger runners “as they inspire us with their energy and enthusiasm, and hopefully we show them that running fast is possible at any age!”
