Welcome to the Aiken Running Club

From the clay roads of horse country to the hills of Houndslake, from Odell Weeks and Citizens Park to the Colleton Ave. loop, from Hitchcock Woods to the Greenway, our little corner of paradise has some of the best places to run.

Whether you are a walker or a runner, training for your first 100 meter sprint or a seasoned marathoner, we welcome you to get out and explore this wonderful area with us on foot and share the support, camaraderie, competition, and focus on a healthier lifestyle in our amazing community.

The Aiken Running Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for men and women of all ages, interested in the promotion of fitness and good health through running.  Since being founded in 1979, our interests have gone beyond competitive running.  We encourage our members to participate in road races, track events, cross country runs, fun runs, and social runs.  We support family running and we promote fair competition for people of all ages and abilities.

Our website and Facebook page provides members with news of upcoming events and meetings. The Aiken Running Club organizes and assists in several local events.
