About the Twin City Track Club


The Twin City Track Club (TCTC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting running and fitness in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area since 1977. We are North Carolina's oldest running club and one of the largest clubs in the Southeast. Our members are a cross-section of the community, representing runners and walkers of all abilities. We have group activities to promote the social aspects of running, and bring in nationally known speakers to educate and inspire, and we assist other organizations with their organized running events. We are a proud member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) and United States Track and Field (USATF).

Cook Medical Beat the Heat



Please join us this year for what we promise to be a thrilling event conducted in a different format.  With the current uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, the races will all be virtual this year for the safety of participants, volunteers, and spectators.  But we promise it will still be fun and a high-value event for all runners!  Please join us in mid-July and run your race!  Run it for our charity partners.  Run it for community health.  Run it to cross your own finish line!

Beat the Heat has been one of the most popular races in North Carolina for more than 30 years!. It has been selected multiple times by Endurance Magazine as the best 5K in Triad NC and was featured in Running Journal magazine as the #1 “Under the Radar” race in the South. Beat the Heat is a charity event with proceeds going to local non-profits that support health and fitness in the community.

Ultimate Runner - August 29th 2020


The Club hopes to stage Ultimate Runner on August 29 at Hanes Park.  The preliminary Summer Track Series events would be held on August 5, 12, and 26, also at Hanes Park.  Registration for Ultimate would re-open on about July 13.  All of this is still tentative and depends on limits set by the Governor’s Stage 3 order, but the Club is confident it can conduct the event within the expected restrictions.
