Upstate Running Club

The Upstate Running Club was founded in 2020 and serves the needs of the running & fitness community with weekly club runs, races, volunteer efforts, and youth organized training sessions. The URC has quickly become the biggest club in the state of South Carolina with over 1500 club members and host over 30 races in the Upstate. The Upstate Running Club is a proud member of the Road Runners Club of America. The URC is a 501(c)(3) organization and is organized and managed by a board of directors and executive committee. 
 
The mission of the Upstate Running Club is to promote running, fitness, and wellness to all members of the Upstate Community through group runs, local sponsorships, and cost effective races. Consider joining us for our weekly group runs. 

 

Upstate Running Club Youth Team

The Upstate Running Club has filed its articles of organization with the state of South Carolina and the federal government to obtain its 501(c)(3) status as a non profit. Our goal is to bring our passion of running to the youth of the Upstate by providing FREE organized runs, training sessions, and racing opportunities throughout the year.
 
Without Limits Coaching service is the title sponsor of the Upstate Running Club teams and will be providing training for youth athletes this year! This year we are bringing youth training sessions to Christ Church Episcopal School starting on June 5th. The program will offer a 60 minute session lead by our sponsored coaches at Without Limits along with volunteer parent coaches. The program will be held every Sunday starting on June 5th at 6pm through Thanksgiving weekend. We will offer our youth runners a racing singlet, discounts at our local running store Run Inn, and discounted race entries to several events throughout the upstate. We as a team will also organize track and cross country races that are open to the public. We will be training for the Footlocker Championships held in Charlotte each year at McAlpine Park.
