The Greenville Track Club, established in 1972, is the 2nd oldest running club in South Carolina, and the fastest growing Running Club in the Southeast.
Our membership includes athletes of every ability level and age group from casual walkers to premier runners and track & field athletes throughout the southeast. The common thread among the membership is a desire to stay fit and informed about matters impacting their ability to enjoy life to the fullest.
It is the club’s goal to provide the running and fitness community with a schedule of top quality events in which area residents can reach fitness and life enrichment goals through participation or volunteering.
Our schedule of activities include road and trail races of various distances from the 2 mile to the full marathon, fun runs and walks, and summer track & field meets with events for every member of the family.
There are also social activities such as our Monthly Meetings, our Quarterly Trail Runners Meetings, Annual Awards Ceremony (February), a Fall Party and the Holiday Party (December).
Just as we encourage local residents to join our club to support running and fitness on a local level, the GTC supports running on a state and national level through its involvement in the USA Track & Field and Road Runners Clubs of America (RRCA).
We welcome anyone who is interested in becoming a member, and look forward to working with you to make the GTC and the Upstate area the very best that it can be!
