The Ann Arbor Track Club is an all-volunteer organization and 501c3 not-for-profit corporation. Since 1968, we have served our members and community and adapted our mission to meet their evolving needs.
Our members include elite distance and track & field athletes, those who aspire to be, and those who just want to stay fit. Our members also enjoy the opportunities that volunteering offers.

We promote fitness, friendship, and fun for all ages through running, walking, and track & field activities.
We strive to remove barriers from those who want and deserve to participate in the sports that have given us all so much. We provide financial support to those who meet these criteria:
- Private individuals, teams, or not-for-profit organizations.
- Engaged in running, track field, or other fitness/athletic activity.
- Live in or serve southeastern Michigan if possible.
- Need our support.
We are governed by a board of directors (BOD) elected by the membership to two-year terms. Current board members are Mitchell Garner, Reed Swanson, James Edwards, Diane Scarpace, Wally Hayes, Brian Harreld, Robert Newman, Ellen Nitz, Ariel Raupagh, Nancy Yvanauskas, Meghan O'Neil, and Mike Manz.
There are monthly board meetings and an annual general meeting of the membership held in November. Board members are elected at the annual general meeting of the membership. Schedules for meetings are posted in Events & Workouts. BOD meetings are open to all AATC members. Any AATC member or interested party who wishes to appear before the BOD to make a presentation at a scheduled BOD meeting should contact the President by noon of the meeting day to make arrangements for having the topic of the presentation, time permitting, placed on the meeting agenda.
The BOD is served by four committees with specific and complementary responsibilities. The executive committee is elected by the BOD; other committees are by staffed by interested parties. We encourage AATC members to join in to help out with various AATC jobs. We are always in need of more volunteers.
