Dead Runners Society United Kingdom
The Dead Runners Society (DRS) is a worldwide online running club. Founded in the United States of America in 1991 as an electronic mailing list, DRS is an active virtual community with members ranging from beginning runners to elite athletes, coaches, race directors, writers and editors of running magazines.
DRS members are known as deads. Online discussion includes everything from meditation to marathon training, and even topics only marginally related to running. Deads meet regularly at races. Annual World Conferences have been held since 1993.
