Announcement

We are thankful to have hosted so many weekly Track Tuesdays at Quail Hollow Middle School, but like all good things, our regular track workouts have come to an end. While there will continue to be runners who may choose to show up for an early workout, we no longer guarantee light or company on a weekly basis. Please visit our All Things Track page and connect with other runners around town to plan your oval miles. Stay safe friends. 

From April into May with CRC

Check out what's going on in the University area of Charlotte by joining our monthly Mallard Creek Greenway Run. We will launch at 7am from Mallard Creek Elementary School for the group run, and then head over for some breakfast and social time from 8am - 9:30am at a first-time-ever Saturday edition of Rise N Run at locally owned Run For Your Life. The store is just 1.6 miles down the street from the school. Need to restock on gels or anti-chafe balm after your long run? RFYL is opening early just for us so you'll have the option to shop with friends. See you there!

Special thanks to Charlotte Running Co. for their assistance with sourcing these.

Our mission: Building a Strong and Healthy Community Through Running

The Charlotte Running Club consists of passionate runners that strive to spread the love of running and to help each other grow. The Club's goal is to bring the expansive, diverse, and exciting Charlotte running community together under one umbrella through motivation, group runs, and social events. 

Our club represents an incredibly diverse population, from lifelong competitive runners to couch-to-5k-ers and everyone in between. We all found running for different reasons and at different times in our lives, but we all now share a collective interest in making Charlotte a better place to run. Over the coming months and years, CRC is committed to helping to drive that transformation by connecting our members to:

  • Running Opportunities. From fun runs to workouts to races, we help connect runners to events and activities for runners of all ages and abilities.
  • Social Opportunities. You can't run all the time, so we provide fun and engaging opportunities for runners to socialize away from roads, tracks, and trails.
  • Community Involvement. Whether we're volunteering at a local park, coaching and mentoring with community running organizations, or advocating for runner safety, we strive to help make Charlotte a better place to run.
