What We Do
Our aims are health, fitness and fun. We are a feel-good club. Usually, we run-jog-walk just for our own good, and we have plenty of activities for that indulgence. But as a club, we do a lot of other nice things:
Summer Youth Program
This five-week program stresses personal improvement for kids ages 3 to 18. From June to July, more than 100 youth compete in running and walking events (ranging from 50-yard dash to 1-mile run) and field events.
The Colts are a competitive running team for kids ages 6 to 14. This program, part of the Central Missouri Athletics Circuit, promotes healthy activity and opportunities through running for boys and girls. The team practices together once a week in the fall and runs cross-country.
CTC annually awards $1,000 Joe Marks Youth Scholarships to one male and female from each local high school. To be considered for the scholarships, students must be involved in either track & field or cross-country and be an active member of CTC where he/she has volunteered in various running/walking events. The scholarships are funded by club memberships, club-sponsored events and private donations. Previous scholarship winners can be found here.
In 2001, CTC donated a water fountain to the MKT trailhead at Scott Boulevard. In addition, CTC lends a helping hand to several hospitals and charitable organizations over the years. Fisher House has been a Charity Partner of the Heart of America Marathon since 2020.
