CRC “Pilot” 1000 Mile Program

Running is a sport that by in large exist only in the shadows of our communities. We as runners for the most part exercise in the predawn hours or after dusk when our family chores have been completed. Thus much of what we do exist far away from eyes of the rest of the world – unknown and unrecognized.

But this doesn’t have to be the case. This is why I pushed for our club to create a mileage program and volunteered to lead it this year. Our club members work hard and play hard. For all of those hours spent putting one foot in front of another there needs to have some acknowledgment - light shined on it.

So I encourage all of our members to participate in this program by submitting your miles. All the information about the program is contained below. However, if there are still questions, feel free to email us at CRC Mileage Program.

Mile Program Information:

The Charlotte Running Club is proud to announce a new club benefit available to all club members – The "CRC Pilot Mileage Program” with a 1000 mile goal. The intention of this pilot program is to provide members with a purpose to help them further their passion for running during the 2012 year.
