North Carolina Roadrunners Club

Come Run With Us

Welcome to NCRC
Welcome to the North Carolina Roadrunners Club, commonly known as NCRC! We're a nonprofit organization that's a member club of the Road Runners Club of America, one of 23 RRCA clubs in North Carolina. We're based in Raleigh, where our club began in 1979 (see the About NCRC tab for more details). NCRC hosts three races each year, ranging in length from 5K to half-marathon, and holds two annual fund-raising events (see the NCRC Races/Events tab for details). Benefits of becoming a club member include race and in-store discounts, a bimonthly online newsletter, a member rewards program, and the opportunity to join our 1,000 Mile Club (see the 1,000 Mile Club tab for details). We also hold social runs and other events throughout the year (see the Calendar tab). All runners and walkers are welcome to join us!
NCRC Fourth Quarter Potluck Meeting — Monday, Dec. 12
Each year, NCRC has a potluck dinner at our fourth quarter meeting in December. This year's December meeting will be at the Halifax Community Center in downtown Raleigh on Dec. 12. We'll celebrate members' accomplishments in 2022 and confirm the NCRC board for 2023. Our guest speaker will be Jason Biggs, an owner of FS Series, the Raleigh endurance events and timing company. This year, FS Series launched the NC Race Series, a revival of the Second Empire Grand Prix Series with 14 races, including the three NCRC races.

Non-members are welcome to join us. We'd like to know how many people to expect for the meeting, so please fill out and submit the RSVP form located on the Calendar listing for this event.

Final 2022 NCRC Event — Dec. 17 Adopt-A-Highway
Our final NCRC event for 2022 will be our fourth quarter Adopt-A-Highway cleanup on Dec. 17. NCRC has been keeping clean the 1-mile stretch of Millbrook Road from Shelley Lake to Creedmoor Road since 2002. We'll meet at 9 a.m. on Dec. 17 in the parking lot of the Sertoma Arts Center on Millbrook Road. Join us for this community service and enjoy refreshments and socializing afterward.
Registration Open for Run for the Roses 5K (New Location)
Registration is now open for the 2023 Run for the Roses 5K, and we'll have a new location! Due to ongoing construction at Dorothea Dix Park, the 2023 race will be held at Carroll Joyner Park in Wake Forest (check out the Calendar listing on this website for the details, including a course map). The race, part of the NC Race Series, will continue its Valentine's traditions of taking place the weekend before Valentine's Day and every female finisher receiving a red rose. We'll also have the same two veterans-related beneficiaries. Come join us for our winter race, one of the oldest 5Ks in the Triangle!
