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? 

Come out to a CHRC run or event! We’d love if you filled out this 2 minute New Member Form, so we can get to know our membership. After filling out the form, you should get a follow-up response within 7 days (but come out and join us for a run 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-level or speed. All of our runs are open to everyone, 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?

Nope! But you can register with NYRR for FREE and then participate in the club points series! If you plan to race a lot and be an active member in the New York running community, you may want an NYRR membership. 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 cover scenery all over Brooklyn and Manhattan! Check our schedule for opportunities to run with us!

WHAT ELSE DO Y’ALL DO?

In addition to running, we meet up once a month to catch up and meet new faces, volunteer with Girls on the Run, go on hiking & camping outings, and have post-run brunches!

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.
