The FTC is a competitive track and field club based in Pleasanton CA. We train to improve our athletic ability and we look to have fun while we do so. We have a great supportive team dynamic and we look to provide positive encouragement and feedback.


While we love to have new members join, please note that we are not a social or recreational running club. All athletes must be fit enough to run an 8 minute mile in order to join and everyone under age 10 must tryout before joining FTC.
