The Charleston Running Club, created by runners for runners, exists for the purpose of the promotion, encouragement, organization and education of running and running activities for sport, recreation, competition and health in the local community.
Since 1977 the Charleston Running Club has been promoting running in the local running community. Early on we were instrumental in starting two of the area's largest races, the Cooper River Bridge Run and the Kiawah Marathon. While we don't direct either of these races anymore, we are represented on the board of the Bridge Run and we host the Charlie Post Classic 15K/5K in January along with the Floppin’ Flounder 5K and Open and Masters Track Classic in June and the Bohicket Half and 5K in November.
We welcome all running abilities. Our diverse group includes first time runners along with some of South Carolina’s elite runners. We all come together monthly to share our running stories, find new running partners, listen to a guest speaker or go for a group run. In addition to the social benefits, our members receive discounts on races, free training clinics, a great breakfast after the Cooper River Bridge Run and discounts from local retailers.
Charleston, South Carolina is the home of some of the most magnificent running routes in the country. Whether you are a lifelong resident or a short term visitor, we want you to explore the Lowcountry by running through our historic city streets, along our scenic beaches or across the Cooper River Bridge.
We love our running community, so feel free to drop us an email.
