Welcome to the largest running club in the Charlotte area!

Come join us for one of our group runs, because it's a lot easier to run when running  with others!  We have runners of all levels and experience, from ultra-marathoners to those just starting out and trying to make it past those first couple of miles...we've all been there!

With over 9 weekly runs we strive to have a time and place that works with your schedule and training level. Be sure to bring your sense of adventure and humor too, because although we do like to run a lot, we also like to make running fun!  Check out our photos (http://www.meetup.com/CharlotteRunners/phot...) to see some of our crazy theme/costume runs and social activities that we are (in)famous for!

We usually meet at a nearby place for eats and drinks (or for coffee and breakfast on Saturdays) after each run!  We also have lots of varied social outings and crazy theme runs just for the fun of it! Check out our schedule for locations and RSVP for a run or social gathering...we look forward to meeting you!

Be sure to RSVP so we know you are attending!

Note to beginners: While we do not have a specific "beginners" group, we were all beginners at one time or another!  So this is why it's important to get started, whether you are 22 or 62.  All paces are welcomed and we encouraged you to come run with us!  The organizers of the runs have maps available so you will not get lost, and we wait for everyone at the end so nobody gets left behind.  So come on out to a run, meet your fellow runners, run your pace that you are the most comfortable with, and then join us for an after-run social activity (you will notice most of our runs include this).  : )
