Free Running Clinic:
Runners strive to run faster, more efficiently, and injury free. Good form running focuses on proper mechanics and aims to help runners of all ages and abilities achieve those goals. GFR is designed with simplicity as the primary goal, since if something isn’t easy it generally doesn’t last. Making incremental changes can have a monumental effect on the enjoyability of your exercising. Not a runner? We emphasize how basic principles apply to both running and walking, even for only walking around the mall or to and from your car. GFR addresses posture, lean, and foot strike. We use video to analyze the gait of participants and encourage questions and discussion. Previous topics have included: running on hills, how to use gravity to help you, being barefoot, walking efficiently, footwear, and staying injury free. We have consistently received positive feedback from our clinics and are confident that Good Form Running can have a positive effect on your exercising too.

Welcome to the Charleston Running Club!
The Charleston Running Club, created by runners for runners, exists for the purpose of the promotion, encouragement, organization and education of running and running activities for sport, recreation, competition and health in the local community.
Since 1977 the Charleston Running Club has been promoting running in the local running community.  Early on we were instrumental in starting two of the area's largest races, the Cooper River Bridge Run and the Kiawah Marathon. While we don't direct either of these races anymore, we are represented on the board of the Bridge Run and we host the Charlie Post Classic 15K/5K in January along with the Floppin’ Flounder 5K in June.
With 650+ members, we welcome all running abilities.  Our diverse group includes first time runners along with some of South Carolina’s elite runners.  We all come together monthly to share our running stories, find new running partners, listen to a guest speaker or go for a group run.  In addition to the social benefits, our members receive discounts on races, free training clinics, a great breakfast after the Cooper River Bridge Run and discounts from local retailers.
Charleston, South Carolina is the home of some of the most magnificent running routes in the country. Whether you are a lifelong resident or a short term visitor, we want you to explore the Lowcountry by running through our historic city streets, along our scenic beaches or across the Cooper River Bridge.
Please peruse the information we have gathered for you on the links to your left.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact us anytime!
