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).

TCTC Mission and Vision Statements

Concurrent with its 30th anniversary, Twin City Track Club adopted new mission and vision statements to guide planning and activities over the coming years and decades. We are proud of our 30 year history and the contributions we have made to running in the Winston-Salem area. Our hope is to continue our heritage of positive impact in our community through our activities, events, and services. The following statements were approved by the TCTC Board on August 20, 2017.

Mission: To inspire and support all runners in our community

Vision: We aspire to build a healthy and socially connected community through running events, activities, support and information

We look forward to engaging all TCTC members to embrace and demonstrate our commitment to these aims.

TCTC Member Garry Russ Completes Marathons in All 50 States


In the two-day running extravaganza that is the Anchorage Run Fest (fundraiser for our fellow RRCA club the Anchorage Running Club), a long-time member of the Twin City Track Club quietly crossed a finish line that completed a longtime goal: Garry Russ completed his 50th marathon in his 50th state.

To be clear, he’s completed more than 100 marathons and ultramarathons since he began this quest in 2006. But now he’s run a marathon in every state in our nation.

It was a journey two years in the making. We announced in 2020 that we would no longer publish the Flyer in printed form. And throughout 2021, the amazing Robert Hill has lent his design skills to making a PDF version that we shared via email. We proudly launched the new online version at the beginning of 2022.
