"Leadership is lifting a person's vision to high sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard and the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations." - Peter Drucker
Fall 2022 Executive Board
Hi, I'm Matt, I'm a junior majoring in finance from Janesville Wisconsin. I've been running since my sophomore year of high school and had some success in those years. I was an all-conference athlete and a part of a 4x800 team that took 7th at the Wisconsin state track meet. I have been a member of the run club since my very first day at IU and I've made so many friends and have had so much fun through running here. This is a great place to meet new people and stay in shape! Feel free to reach out to me through my email link!
FunDraising and Volunteering Chair
Hi friends! My name is Eli Eckert and I'm so excited to serve as your Volunteering & Fundraising Chair for 2022! I'm a senior in the class of 2023, and I'm majoring in Environmental Science with a minor in Geography. I began running in high school, and after an injury-ridden start in the sport, it's the thing that I look forward to almost every day! I believe that anyone who enjoys running, no matter their skill level, should be able to experience the thrill and joy that comes from running and be part of the family that we have in Run Club.
My job this year is to help make Run Club more accessible by making it cheaper through fundraising, and I also want to get Run Club more involved in the Bloomington community through volunteering! If you have any ideas for these or want to work on something together, please feel free to reach out!

Cross Country Coordinator
Hello all, I am Noah Scott. I am a junior studying Psychology, and I will be the Cross Country Coordinator in 2022. Running is a beautiful sport. We get to enjoy the sublimity of the natural world as we voluntarily accept suffering, turning it into something meaningful through our performances. Most importantly, we share in this pattern together, holding each other accountable and lifting each other up every single day through our communal participation. The beauty of our sport uniquely manifests itself in competition. Everyone who has stood on the line before a race knows the unmistakable mix of dread and exhilaration which accompanies that moment. As Cross Country Coordinator, it is my job to give all of us the opportunity to experience that feeling this fall. I pledge to take care of the technical side of things so that we all can engage in what we love without inhibition. If you ever have questions or concerns about anything, please communicate with me, as your feedback improves the club for everyone. I look forward to our time together this year!

My goals for this track season are to create as many opportunities to compete as possible as well as to build a community of sprinters, jumpers and throwers within run club.
