Today's interview is with the LVTC President, Steve Thornock
The LVTC started as a Non-Profit in 1969
2. What is the purpose?
It started as a fun way to get in shape for guys that were drinking buddies. Our Scholarship Program started in 2000 which has now given away over $99K in Scholarships!
3. How many members?
1048 as of April, 2012 of all ages and running skill levels
4. What are the low-key races?
Our LVTC Low Key Races are timed ($3 for Members/$5 for Non-Members) with Race Ribbons for all. No Shirts. No Food. Affordable to race. All low-key's take place at various parks/areas throughout Clark County. Kids under 10 always race for free. It's a great time!
Up through last year, most every high school senior that applied won $500 or more. This year, 18 applied. About half of them will share $15,000!
6. What are some of the key races the LVTC hosts each year?
In addition to our 20 or so Low Key Races, we host T-Shirt Races such as our Championship Series 10K, Celebrate Education/National RUN A MILE Day Run, Legends of Cross Country, Notch Run, Forest Challenge as well as our four Charity T-Shirt Races each year.
