We are a group of student athletes committed to both academic endeavors and running during our short time here at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
Cal Poly Distance Club is open to anyone who wants to run. Whether you are looking to compete, or you are just looking for a group of running buddies CPDC is the place for you.
During the school year, we meet Monday through Friday at 4:10 PM near the 50M mark on the track. Feel free to swing by, check us out, and meet some great people!
CPDC is one of the top teams in NIRCA (National Intercollegiate Running Club Association). We travel up and down the west coast of California in order to fit as many races as we can during the seasons.
Our daily practices are more like sweet hangouts, while running. But, we do things besides running too! Come check out our IM flag football team, toss a frisbee around with us, come camping, or hang out at our movie nights.
CPDC is dedicated to making the city and county of San Luis Obispo a better place. We love volunteering at local events like the trail maintenance days out at Montaña De Oro, and the SLO City Marathon.
The Distance Club is the most affordable athletic club at Cal Poly, and we try to keep that cost low for you. With our three-tiered membership system we have a perfect option for everyone.
We are a student-run organization. At the forefront, or behind the scenes, these people help CPDC run smoothly.
