COVID-19 and Running

The recent COVID-19 crisis has disrupted all of our lives and resulted in the cancellation of many local and national running races. We feel your pain. Twin City Track Club is tracking the updates and the impact on the running community.  The purpose of this page is to keep you updated on what we know and to offer some suggestions on how you might continue doing what you love to do -- RUNNING - while we get through this crisis in ways that are consistent with public health guidelines and government requirements.

Group Running


Science indicates there is less risk of disease transmission when running outdoors.  Still, precautions should be taken and runners should be especially careful to social distance before and after runs when standing around. 

Group runs are allowed with guidance as follows:

  • Split into smaller groups during runs based upon pace and distance preferences.
  • Practice social distancing before, during, and after runs.
  • Move safely away from others if you need to cough or sneeze.
  • Cap Meetup signup at 50 people (consistent with NC phase 3 requirements)
  • Discourage post-run social gatherings at this time
  • Please stay home if you are not feeling well or believe you may have been exposed to the coronavirus
  • Wear a mask if you are within 6 feet of others before or after you run.

TCTC will continue to monitor the guidance of public health officials and governmental bodies.
