The Carmel Runners Club (CRC) is a volunteer-operated, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization promoting healthy lifestyles through running, walking, and social opportunities in Carmel, Indiana and the surrounding communities. CRC promotes running and walking opportunities year-round by hosting multiple group runs and walks each week. These outings are for everyone regardless of age or pace. The club also provides training programs for runners and walkers targeting longer distance races in the spring and fall. These include optional, recommended distances and routes. CRC also promotes healthy lifestyles through expert-led workshops and seminars throughout the year. We also strategically partner with local businesses to provide discounts to our members on related goods and services. Social interaction is also a vital component in the club’s impact on its membership. Pre and post-race socials are enjoyed by members. We also schedule non-race related socials on a regular basis and encourage family participation to be able to include non-runners/walkers as well. The club also promotes volunteerism and philanthropy. Club members volunteer at various race and non-race related events throughout the year. Additionally, in conjunction with our business sponsors, we annually award scholarships to local high school seniors whose lives have been improved by running. All runners, walkers, and interested individuals are welcome regardless of age or ability.
