2019 1Q Meeting (1/24/2019)

It’s time to kick off a new year with our first quarterly club meeting! We’ll meet at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 24 in the conference room of the Lake Johnson Waterfront Program Center (4601 Avent Ferry Road, Raleigh, NC 27606). This will be a great time to meet new members, talk about upcoming events, and get NCRC’s 40th anniversary year off to a wonderful start!

Our guest speaker will be Brandon Hudgins, a professional runner and Sir Walter Miler alumnus who has overcome significant medical obstacles in his return to elite status. He is also author of the book “Going the Distance”. Brandon’s story can be very inspirational as we look to get 2019 off to a great start!

We will also be recognizing and honoring the “Class of 2018” in our 1,000-Mile Club! If you joined the 1,000-Mile Club in 2018 and reached that goal, please attend the 1Q meeting to be recognized, receive your shirt, and be present in the “Class of 2018” photograph after the meeting!

Active NCRC members get a volunteer point for attending a quarterly meeting!

Join the NCRC Cross-Country Championship Team! (10/23/2018)

Would you like to be a part of the North Carolina Roadrunners Club Cross-Country Championship team?  This year, Sir Walter Running is once again hosting the Raleigh City Cross-Country Championship on Tuesday, October 23 at 6pm in the big grassy field at Dix Park.  The race is three miles.  No limits on size of the team, first four team finishers count in the scoring.

If you would like to run in the championship as part of the NCRC team, first be an active NCRC member, then register for the championship and select NCRC as your team.  Registration for the race is $15 (plus fees) until 10/16, then there is a price increase.  (Please give Brad at president@ncroadrunners.org a heads-up when you register so he can maintain a team roster for the evening.)

No rules on team uniforms, but wear an NCRC club shirt if you have one, or wear a shirt from one of our races!  Plus, you can run in Sir Walter Running’s Pop-up XC races in Dix Park on October 2nd, 9th, and 16th to learn the terrain!

There is a post-race party at Trophy Brewing as well.  We’d love to have you “come run with us” as part of the team, but even if you can’t run, come on out to support and cheer for the NCRC team!
