WHO ARE Y’ALL?

We are a friendly and growing community, diverse in our fitness, diverse in our running experience and diverse in our running goals and motivations. We come from all over this large neighborhood and have a lot of fun when we do! We welcome all interested folks ages 18 and over.

HOW DO I JOIN THIS FUN and FRIENDLY GROUP? 

Fill out this 2 minute New Member Form. While giving us some information to help us connect you with relevant committees and members of the Council, you will receive important key pieces of information about how to join in on all our activities. After filling out the form, you should get a follow-up response within 7days (but you can come and join us whenever you want!) If you have any questions, email: members@crownheightsrunningclub.nyc.

I’M A …(INSERT LEVEL HERE) – DO YOU HAVE A RUN FOR ME?

CHRC’s weekly group runs (that go on ALL YEAR ROUND) are based on the type of workout, not on experience or speed. Each of our runs are open to all members, no matter where you are in your running journey.

Our motto is: Every runner has something to offer. No matter what your ability or preference, don’t be shy; come out and share with us what motivates you to run!

IS THERE ANY COST?

Nope! CHRC is free to join, free to run, and free to have fun.

DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF NYRR TO JOIN?

To become a member of CHRC, we ask all our members to register with NYRR for FREE. You are not required to purchase membership with NYRR to participate in CHRC local runs and events. If you plan to race a lot and be an active member in the New York Running Community, purchasing a membership with NYRR is encouraged. Benefits of NYRR membership can be found here.

WHERE DO YOU RUN?

We generally run in the Crown Heights neighborhood and Prospect Park, while our longer mileage runs can cover scenery all over Brooklyn and Manhattan! Check our schedule for opportunities to run with us!

WHAT ELSE DO Y’ALL DO?

In addition enjoying runs and racing together, we meet up once a month in the neighborhood to catch up and meet new faces. Volunteering with Girls on the Run, going on outings (hiking and overnight camping), eating delicious post-run food at local establishments, and having a great time are things we love and are pretty good at doing!

DO YOU HAVE SHIRTS?

We sure do! Ye Olde Gear Shoppe opens every few months for orders. Keep up to date on our News Page about when orders are being taken. Our logo and shirts are member-designed and locally produced by Good Toy Print Lab. Check it out!
