Clifton Roadrunners

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 or a newcomer, 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 page, or feel free to show up at one of our informal get-togethers to run a mile or 20 with us! We'll give you the support you need, and we'd love for you to become part of our team!
