Welcome!


2016 - Thanksgiving Day Club Run
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!

MRC- June 13, 2020 - The Melrose Running Club’s charter is to make a positive contribution to our community while promoting the sport of running. We are committed to providing an inclusive environment free of bias and discrimination for our members. We acknowledge that in our society not all people have the same privileges to run freely without fear. We stand with communities of color and against racial bias and violence. We encourage our members to reach out as we continue to promote diversity and stand against racism to build a stronger, more inclusive running community.
