SRTT Guidelines

  • You are signing up to be a chapter leader for She RUNS This Town – a FREE worldwide running club for women. This means there is no fee for you to sign up and no fees ever for your members!
  • We are She RUNS This Town (SRTT) – formerly known as, Moms RUN This Town (MRTT).  We recently changed our name to open our arms to a broader audience, but will always have both She RUNS and Moms RUN.  We chose to use “she” because it is more inclusive.  To put things simply – if the “she” fits – join us!  
  • As a chapter leader of SRTT we expect you will encourage your members to be an active part of your chapter. That means encouraging interactions on the Facebook group as well as face-to-face interactions. Most in person meetings are for group runs or for photo ops before a race. That was the original purpose of SRTT: so members will never have to run alone (unless they want to) and to have members networked EVERYWHERE. We have a national facebook page for individual members, as well as, a virtual chapter facebook page for individuals who aren’t near a local chapter.
  • We are an international organization which means your chapter is not alone.  You are a part of a beautiful network of running women all over the world!  We have a private chapter leader facebook group.  There, you an connect with chapter leaders from around the world to help guide you along the way.  Your sister chapters are always there to help as well!  You will find suggestions and support for how to spread the word about your chapter, challenges to encourage member participation, advice for dealing with chapter issues, as well as discount codes and other perks for you and your chapter. 
  • Your chapter is set up by using a facebook group (not a page) you create using your town/city name and state.  You have the ability to set up questions to screen new members coming in which helps keep the group focused on women runners, local to your area, who wish to be a part of our organization. 
  • Every chapter runs a little different – and you will find what fits your group best.  You are welcome to set up organized weekly runs but always just encourage women to chime in when they are looking for running partners.
  • You are welcome to host non-running events like painting parties, girls nights, etc to keep the group fun and connected.
  • We have guidelines in place for leaders and members to help enforce rules and give you some guidance.
  • Everyone runs at their own risk.  SRTT/MRTT should not be held liable nor should the chapter leader for any issues that occur during group runs or events.  Please encourage your girls to train smart, properly hydrate, and use common sense.
  • Use of the SRTT/MRTT logo or any names is protected by Affinity Licensing.  We offer a number of options to have gear produced for your chapter so just ask and we will guide you!
  • Please don’t use SRTT/MRTT as a platform for things that may be opinion based.  As a whole, we will address issues and offer guidance/suggestions, but your role as chapter leader is to be as neutral as possible when conducting your group.  Keep it to running and fitness please 🙂
  • You are not to collect any dues/membership fees from your members.  We are a free running club.  If we find out you are profiting in any way from operating your chapter, we will remove your chapter and other actions may follow.  If you need any guidance on collecting money for group orders, please contact us first.
  • As a chapter leader, I’m trusting you to use common sense and do what is best for your chapter as a whole.  You may come across issues/disagreements in your chapter – please do your best to handle them in a tactful neutral way.  If you need guidance, please ask for help.
  • Selling or swapping bibs within a chapter is only allowed if the race has an official transfer process.  Otherwise, it goes against the rules of the race which would make it illegal. This is why SRTT does not allow selling/swapping bibs unless the race rules allow it.
  • Advertising is not allowed in your group.  Some chapters have a “local venders” page where members can post their businesses, but offering any type of sale/discount/promotion where a member will profit off other members is prohibited.  This keeps the group tidy and focused on running/fitness only.
  • As we grow we may have to implement changes or add rules/guidelines.  This page may update and you will be held to the guidelines on this page.  Please know that this is for the betterment of the club as a whole.
