Why Join TCTC?

Twin City Track Club (TCTC) is a club for anyone with an interest in running and fitness - not just fast or elite runners. Our 600+ members include runners and walkers of all abilities. Beginners and those returning to running/walking after time away are especially encouraged to join TCTC and connect with others who can work out with you and provide encouragement. Membership is inexpensive, only $20 per year for an individual.

There are group runs almost every day of the week. The club uses services for members to post runs and RSVP if they plan to attend. If you can't find a group that runs at your time or pace, let us know, we'll help you start one.

We are runners, yes, but we are also friends and the Twin City Track Club has many organized social events throughout the year. There are hash runs to give you a chance to run and navigate at the same time, and enjoy food and fellowship after. We have breakfast runs at Salem Lake, a seven mile trail run around the lake at any pace followed by breakfast foods provided by TCTC. Some of our most popular events include our an annual picnic, summer outing cheering on The Winston-Salem Dash at the ballpark, and our festive and fun holiday party where we try and recognize each other in something a little fancier that race day attire! . And there are also member-driven and organized trips to major national and regional races.

Our bi-monthly newsletter, the TCTC Flyer, is widely regarded as the best in the state, even one of the best in the country. Articles and interest stories are provided by the members. In addition, there are summaries of club races, and a calendar of upcoming races and social events. All club members are encouraged to write for the Flyer.

The club hosts many great runs like the Frosty Fifty 50K, Beat the Heat 5K, the nationally known Ultimate Runner and the popular Salem Lake 30K trail race.
