What we’re about
Charlotte Runners, founded in 2007, is an all-volunteer run group with the mission to combine RUN with FUN to encourage both runners and those wanting to start running to participate in this great sport.
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!
We started the concept of combining RUNS with social activities (FUN!) when we kicked off our first weekly Thursday night run back in December of 2007 in Plaza-Midwood out of The Common Market. While the other weekly runs we have added over the years have changed as organizers come and go, the Thursday Night flagship run in Plaza-Midwood is still going strong after 16 years - but it's now held at The Legion Brewing every Thursday at 6:30pm!
Most of our runs have moved to Facebook and Instagram accounts for their updates and you will see this posted in the meetup descriptions (that's why you don't see much on the RSVP list). We also have an official FB page: https://www.facebook.com/CharlotteRunners/ for more information about our weekly runs!
Come join us!

Welcome to the Ultra53EastoverRuns. We have paired The Ultra Running Company with one of Charlotte’s Premier Neighborhoods. Eastover between Elizabeth & Myers Park is a beautiful, tree lined neighborhood with nice paved roads and stately homes. It is perfect for hot weather training as the roads are blanketed in shade. The main course is 5 miles of speed with just enough hills to remind you that this is still Charlotte. The short course is 3 miles of easy rolling streets. Get there by 5:30pm & Try the 3, 5 Challenge. The Main Pack of Runners will gather by 6:00PM.
