Don't know the exact location you are at, but look at the region map in the club section on the front page of this site. Contact the Region Director for the meeting dates and locations. Drop by and get to know folks, pick their brains. If they get to know you a little, you will in all probability get invited to go on a run as a passenger. Let them know a little background and what you might be looking for and people here will bend over backward to help out.
Good Luck, and welcome to the forum.
