Club Membership Information

The Lancaster Road Runners Club has been in existence since 1977 when a few motivated local runners thought it important to organize a club catering to the needs of runners in the area. As everyone knows, there has been a boom in running throughout the United States and especially in the Lancaster area. Our club would like to continue to attract new members, of whatever ability, and we cordially invite YOU to join us.
The LRRC is a local organization, located in Lancaster, PA, USA & affiliated with the Road Runners Club of America. Our club has never been, nor will be, elitist. We are NOT an organization strictly for professional running "fanatics" or "superjocks". We support running by men, women, and children of all ages and levels of motivation. Our club is a group of people who appreciate the running experience and whose collective abilities range from the around-the-block joggers to serious long distance competitors. Our main objective is to promote good health and physical fitness derived from running. We support fund raising events and races which benefit local and national charities.
