Team Members and Pet Members and Growing…

The purpose of the team is to support each other in our pursuit of fitness, offering an outlet for our passion of running, walking, biking, hiking, any sport and an active lifestyle.

At C&C Runners we’re a family of runners who believe in supporting the fastest runner to the slowest runner.  As Vince Lombardi once said “Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”  This is one of our core values.  Do you enjoy running? Do you like social running? C&C runners may be the group you’re looking for.  We’re one of the only running clubs in SW Virginia that doesn’t charge dues or any type of fees.

Becoming a member of C&C Runners is FREE and there are no restrictions/criteria to join. We accept everyone regardless of pace or ability level.   Whether you run, walk or just like being active within our community we will encourage and support you throughout your endeavors.   We have members near and far (even overseas).

Pets are Welcome…

Pets are also welcome!   Feel free to have your pets wear our colors and to join us when possible.  The only requirement is that your pet likes to run and enjoys running with us whatever the distance  They too can be classified as a C&C Runner Pet.

The main things we stress as C&C members are being there for each other no matter what, through good times and bad, to support and strengthen the group as a whole. Let’s get better together!

We are on Facebook…


To stay more up-to-date on the happenings of C&C Runners we have a couple of Facebook group pages with different purposes.  Just by joining the Facebook pages, does not make you a member.  See below how to join C&C Runners as an official member.

  • C&C Runners Race & Event Headquarters The purpose of this page is to share our passion for running and racing. We love to hear about your adventures of running and racing of any kind.
  • C&C Runners Upcoming Events:This page serves two purposes.  1} to post only racing and event information and 2) to establish event invites to the entire team whether in town or out-of-town to inform and support one another in any event that is a racing or training event.
  • C&C Runners Networking Group: The purpose of this page is to provide opportunities for networking within the team and the promotion of your products. We welcome your services/goods of any kind that affects our quality of life.   This is a closed group and the administrator will be responsible for content of a questionable nature.
  • C&C Runners Prayer Group The purpose of this page is to honor the prayer requests of our great and precious team. Many are facing difficulty and need help in knowing that God will move in our situation. This is a closed group and all requests will need to be submitted to this page rather than the public page.

C&C Runners Give Back to the Community…

We love to see the team volunteering for local races and events giving back to our sport and try to encourage strong participation in local races.  We strive to change lives and encourage community involvement.
