On November 10, 2007, approximately 14 runners met on a cold morning in a local coffee house. They discussed with admiration the running clubs flourishing in other communities.

The runners debated whether there was sufficient interest in Northeastern South Dakota to operate a running club. The result was a unanimous decision to start an organization dedicated to running and its benefits. A week later, the Aberdeen Area Running Club, a not-for-profit corporation, was formed. Today, the club is still actively supporting area runners and sponsoring a variety of local events.
