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 18 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, volunteer recognition, 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 August Carpenter Park Run — Saturday, Aug. 27
We'll try to avoid the worst of the summer heat by having our August social run on a Saturday morning, Aug. 27. The location will be Carpenter Park at 4420 Louis Stephens Drive in Cary. We'll meet at the picnic shelter near the playground at 7 a.m. It's a small park with a path around a pond and access to some nearby greenways for walkers or runners. One highlight of the park is "Fly Away Home," a sculpture made from 10,000 pounds of willows. The park also has memorials for two RDU plane crashes. Judy Liu, the leader of this run, will have some cool refreshments for us. Non-members are welcome!
Special Guest for Sept. 11 NCRC Quarterly Meeting
For NCRC's third quarter meeting in September, we will have a special guest speaker. Andrea Lytle Peet, who lives in Raleigh, on May 28 became the first person with ALS to complete a marathon in all 50 states. Andrea's Team Drea Foundation has raised more than $750,000 for ALS research. She will present her inspiring story at 3:30 p.m. (doors will open at 3 p.m.) on Sept. 11 at the Thomas G. Crowder Woodland Center at 5611 Jaguar Park Drive in Raleigh. Watch for a Zoom link for this meeting.

ATT 10-Miler and 4-Miler — Saturday, Oct. 22
Join us for the last of three NCRC races in 2022, the ATT 10-Miler and 4-Miler on Oct. 22! You can register now to race either distance or to volunteer. The entire race is on the soft surface of the American Tobacco Trail. The race is an ideal training run for fall marathons or half-marathons, and it can be a chance to set a personal record at a unique distance. Proceeds from the race will help ATT trail maintenance and development through the Triangle Rails to Trails Conservancy.
