October Membership Special: Final days for $10 off
NCRC has a special treat for October! Through Oct. 31, new members can join the club for $15 a year for an individual membership or $25 a year for a family membership. That's $10 off of both the individual and family membership rates. Click on "Join" on  this page to sign up and use the discount code "Octnew." Returning members are encouraged to instead use the code "Octreturn" for the same discount. This discounted rate can be applied only for one year's membership.

Membership entitles you to discounts for NCRC races and other running-related discounts. Members receive those discount codes in email blasts and our bimonthly online newsletter. NCRC is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization. We were excited to have our ATT 10-Miler and 4-Miler back on Oct. 23, and we also expect the full return next year of our Run for the Roses 5K and NCRC Classic Half Marathon and 10K. Our upcoming events include a Halloween social run on Oct. 28, a Thanksgiving Friday social run, a Christmas lights social run, a Christmas potluck, and a December Adopt-A-Highway volunteer event. We have quarterly meetings with guest speakers, including an annual picnic. Members also can participate in a "1000 Mile Club" that recognizes members who run and/or walk 1,000 miles in a year. NCRC also sponsors a Snoopy's hotdog social run in February and added a Spring Forth photo-sharing event in March.

Watch this website ( for details on our upcoming events. We hope you'll join us. If you have any questions, email or membership@ncroadrunners. org. 
Oakwood Halloween Run — Thursday, Oct. 28
Join us for a spooky social run on Thursday, Oct. 28! We'll start at 6 p.m. from State of Beer on Hillsborough Street in downtown Raleigh. From there, we'll run or walk over to the Oakwood neighborhood to see the Halloween decorations and head past Oakwood Cemetery. When we get back, you can stick around for dinner and beer or wine.
Adopt-a-Highway for 4Q 2021 — Saturday, Dec. 18

Let’s talk trash — pickin’ up trash, that is! For almost 20 years, the North Carolina Roadrunners Club has been keeping clean the 1-mile stretch of Millbrook Road in Raleigh going from Shelley Lake to Creedmoor Road. Come join other volunteers for a fun, social morning! It’s some of the easiest NCRC volunteer points you can earn! Fashion-trending safety vests, bags, gloves, and post-pickup refreshments provided! (NCDOT requires that volunteers must be at least 12 years old and that children 12-17 be supervised by an adult at least 21 years old.) We will meet in the parking lot at the Sertoma Arts Center / Shelley Lake at 9:00 a.m. to get organized!

It’s no problem staying socially distant while picking up trash! And the sunshine and time outside will be good for you! Please bring a face mask or bandana just in case it makes others feel more comfortable — and it may come in handy if you find trash that stinks!

Usually there are some juices, coffee and snacks afterwards back at the Sertoma Arts Center / Shelley Lake parking lot after the cleanup! Stick around and socialize if you can!
