WTAC Background                                        WTAC Archives

The Westerly Track & Athletic Club (WTAC) was established in 1975 and is a IRS recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports recreational and competitive running. Proceeds from our events allow us to continue to support local youth running programs. We are a member of USA Track & Field New England (USATF Number 99), which is the governing board of track & field, racewalking, and distance running.

WTAC Meetings

WTAC meets on the second Thursday of each month, September through November, and January through May, at 5:30PM in Westerly, RI. Our meeting are currently held at the Westerly Land Trust offices at Barlow Preserve, 449 Westerly Bradford Road, Westerly, RI.  These meetings are open to all members.

Giving Back to the Community

In recent years, the Westerly Track & Athletic Club gave $2,000 - $3,000 annually for college scholarships to two high school seniors and donated $1,500 annually to the YMCA Reach Out To Youth campaign to help send needy children to summer camp.

In March 2017, the Westerly Track & Athletic Club sponsored five Westerly High School runners who qualified for 2017 New Balance Indoor Nationals in New York City.  (l-r:  Matthew Walker, Emma Santee, Helena Hall-Thomsen, Sydney Federico, Randi Burr)
