Club Bio

The Raleigh Trail Runners run and socialize throughout the Triangle area with a focus on greater Raleigh/Apex. If you need a friendly supportive running group, look no further! We have the following regularly scheduled runs, but always check the calendar and RSVP before coming since plans may change and we often schedule unique events like camping and running trips to the mountains. Sunday - Sundays tend to focus on smooth bridle trails at William B. Umstead State Park (Cary side). The starting location is Old Reedy Creek off of Weston Parkway. We meet at the picnic shelter at the Black Creek Greenway parking lot trailhead. It's out and back (or some choose to do a loop) and you can run as short or long as you like. We usually meet at Starbucks after the run for some post-run socializing. Tuesday to Friday - Early morning runs at Umstead. 3-10 miles in length. Check the calendar for time and location. Tuesday or Wednesday - North Raleigh run at various parks. Thursday - The Thursday evening run is usually in the Cary/Apex area and can be bridle trail, single track (when it's lighter out longer) or on the greenways. Check the calendar, since the time and location vary. Saturday - Single track trail runs from Umstead or any park in greater Triangle area. Check the calendar for details. While it often turns out that most members will have someone running at their pace, that may not always happen depending on your pace, the distance you are going and who else shows up. So be prepared that you may do some or all of your run alone depending on the situation. Walkers or runners going at a slower pace are certainly welcome, but most of the group is running between a 7 and 13 minute mile, with between 8 and 11 minutes being the most common, so you may not have company on the run. Since most of our runs are generally an out & back or have very few turns, we'll make sure you don't get lost and can meet up with everyone at the end.
