8th Annual NCRC Snoopy’s Social Run (2/24/2019)

Join the annual NCRC Snoopy’s Social Run Sunday, February 24th where we’ll run from Snoopy’s to Snoopy’s to Snoopy’s with a treat (optional) at each location!

We will assemble at the Snoopy’s Meredith College location (3600 Hillsborough Street) at 2:30 p.m. for a mandatory safety briefing and group photo, and then we’ll run in groups to the Snoopy’s downtown location (600 Hillsborough Street) and then on to the E Whitaker Mill location (1931 Wake Forest Road), where we will try to do door prizes by 4:30 p.m.

Again this year, your $10 donation entitles you to a treat at each stop, with proceeds going to Mr. Snoopy’s favorite charity, the SPCA of Wake County. This is our token of thanks for Mr. Snoopy and his team for hosting the NCRC and providing the great hot dogs! Additional donations are greatly appreciated, of course.

More details will be emailed to participants as we get closer to the event.

NCRC members will have early registration preference from until Midnight on Superbowl Sunday (Feb 3rd 2019).  After that Sunday, registration is open to the general public.  Bring a friend and wear a costume!

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!
