About Us

Run. Walk. Be Social.

Welcome to the Carmel Runners Club

The Carmel Runners Club (CRC) is dedicated to fostering a culture of health and camaraderie in Carmel, Indiana, and its surrounding areas. Our journey began in 2011 with a simple yet impactful training program for the Carmel Full and Half Marathons, sparking a local movement among running enthusiasts and community members. As a 501(c)(3) organization, we’re more than just a running group; we’re a family united by a love for running and our community. With the support of the Carmel Marathon and Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation, CRC has become a haven for runners in Hamilton County.
