Where We Run
We must respect the residents of the neighborhood where our workouts take place, as well as those with whom we are sharing public spaces such as the track. Indoor and outdoor spaces should be left at least as clean or cleaner than how they were found. We must be courteous and thoughtful of the environment we are in at all times.
We believe in fostering a community that is supportive, motivating, and inclusive and where fun is at the heart of each session. Whether you are a remote athlete or attending group workouts, M2M members are asked to contribute to upholding this positive environment. We take pride in pushing ourselves and encouraging each other, and we cheer each other on to phenomenal individual results and personal bests. We also value collective accomplishments, self-improvement, and community-building. We strive to support and encourage each other as runners and human beings.
Voicing or Reporting a Concern
Every person has a right to claim and to enforce their right to a services environment free of harassment, discrimination, or any other troubling conduct.
We take concerns about M2M Community Agreement violations very seriously. If you find yourself in a position where a particular situation needs to be addressed, we ask that you “call it in”. When at group practices, we ask that you report your concern to one of our coaches or contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The complaint may be verbal or in writing and no person shall be negatively treated for bringing forward a complaint, providing information related to a complaint, or helping to resolve a complaint.
Members who are found to violate the rules of the M2M Community Agreement will have their membership terminated indefinitely.
