The Friendliest

Running Club in New Jersey

The Clifton Roadrunners Club has welcomed runners fast, slow, and in between for over 40 years! If you're a competitive runner, a newcomer, or anything in between, we'd love to have you join us!

We are a USATF-sanctioned running club that competes in races from one mile to  half-marathons, and our members range from sprinters to marathoners.

Check out our site, send us a note, reach out to our private Facebook group, or feel free to show up at one of our informal get-togethers to run a mile (or 10) with us! We'll give you the support you need, and we'd love for you to become part of our team of 100+ families!

The Friendliest Running Club in New Jersey

One of the oldest running clubs in New Jersey, the Clifton Roadrunners have been running the streets and trails of New Jersey together for over 45 years!

 

We are a USA Track and Field-recognized organization that takes part in all New Jersey USATF events,

and our affiliation with the New York Road Runners gets members special benefits,

including opportunities to run in events like the New York Marathon.
 

OUR RUNNING COMMUNITY:
Whether you have been running for years, are looking to join the running scene, or just would like to get in shape, the Roadrunners are just like you. 

We feature:
• informal group runs
• speed workouts
• winter bun runs

team races

• year-round social get-togethers

• experienced running advice

• running gear and equipment discounts
• THE lowest membership fee of the major NJ running clubs

There is no obligation to run races, or train regularly,

although you are certainly invited to take part in any and all our activities.

We know that running is often a solitary activity,

but staying motivated is where belonging to a community of friends comes in.

Check out our site, join our private Facebook group, or stop by any of our listed gatherings.

The Clifton Roadrunners embody the ideals of good sportsmanship, teamwork, and loyalty.

But above all, we support each other and make running fun!
