Welcome!


2019 - Hopkinton to Boston College SLR
The Melrose Running Club is a fun, social, supportive group of runners. The club was formed in 1996 with the charter to make a positive contribution to our community while promoting the sport of running. Although the ability of members varies from the new runner just developing a routine to the seasoned veteran training for their next marathon, each runner shares in the joy of running and the camaraderie that comes with running as part of a club. If you're looking for someone to run with meet us next Tuesday at 7PM at the Melrose Knights of Columbus!
