Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 WCRC Scholarship! For details and to download the application please visit the Scholarship page.  Applications are due May 15th.


All regularly scheduled group runs and workouts are cancelled until further notice. We hope to be back out running as a club very soon!!!


From November to February our Tuesday night group runs will be held at Rustin High School. Please bring a headlamp or light if you have one and wear reflective clothing if possible.  The warm up starts at 6pm sharp and leaves from the “flagpole” parking lot near the school’s Farm Lane/Shiloh Road entrance.

Tuesday night workouts typically consist of a warmup followed by intervals on the 1 mile loop around the school’s parking lots. Details of each week’s workout are announced in advance to current club members by email.


Weekly group runs leave from the front door of the YMCA on Chestnut Street every Saturday at 9AM. All paces are welcome!! The route typically goes to West Goshen Park (5-6 miles) with options to add on or reduce mileage as needed.

Please check Facebook or the WCRC email list if you have any questions about a Saturday morning run.
