Welcome to Our Running Club!

Our goal is to promote and encourage long distance running and educate the public to its benefits.

Founded in 1955, the PTC is the oldest running club in Virginia and is currently involved in over 35 events annually, ranging from 5Ks to ultramarathons. We currently have about 500 members and serve the Virginia Peninsula and surrounding communities.

We assist community organizations in hosting races. These services include (but are not limited):

  • Finish line setup, timing and results
  • Equipment
  • Course marking
  • Event listing
  • Advertising
  • Fundraising events

Membership dues contribute to maintaining the equipment, printing of the newsletter “On Your Mark”, providing social activities such as general membership meetings and annual awards banquet, and covering other costs incurred in operating a nonprofit organization. Our running club officers are all volunteers and we encourage you to get involved. You’ll find it a lot of fun and very rewarding.
