About Us


The Wicked Running Club was founded in 2002 by Doug Bollen and Mike Toomey in Salem, Massachusetts. From humble beginnings of 20 members attending local clinics, the club has grown to 300+ athletes of all abilities and fitness goals. For our members we provide structure, support, and camaraderie through running series, coaching, club events, and more. For our communities we hold public races and philanthropy for education, scholarships and other causes. You can learn more about our history, membership benefits, and races from this web site. If you have questions or comments, you can submit them via the form on this page.


The mission of the Wicked Running Club is to provide the community with an organized venue in which to promote the sport of running and the benefits we believe it provides to all members, regardless of age or ability. These benefits include, but are not limited to, physical activity, which contributes to a healthy lifestyle, friendship, and social interaction as well as community outreach and support.

Our motto: “We walk, we run, we generally have fun”
