About Uruguayan road running clubs

Road running in Uruguay is managed by the Uruguay Athletes' Federation.

Every Uruguayan road running club seems to have a flag. I am describing below the flags of 23 clubs (including one athlete's personal flag and the flag of the athletics section of two famous sports clubs) I have identified beyond the reasonable doubt. Unless specified, the sources for the images are the Picasa galleries of the AAU; the photos have been made during the road running championship organized by the AAU (18 races in 2011, 19 races scheduled in 2012) and during social events.
