Founded in 1978, the Wilmington Road Runners Club is one of the oldest continuously operating clubs in North Carolina. Our 250+ members run the gamut from speedy racers to occasional joggers, bonded by the simple pleasure of putting one foot ahead of the other on the roads and trails of New Hanover County – and beyond.
