About WRR

Founded in 1977, the Wilmington Road Runners Club is one of the oldest continuously operating clubs in North Carolina. Our 250+ members run the gamut from speedy racers to occasional joggers, bonded by the simple pleasure of putting one foot ahead of the other on the roads and trails of New Hanover County... and beyond.


Your initial membership packet includes:

Wilmington Road Runners membership card and the necessary information to help you rapidly become an integral part of WRRC. With your membership card, you will get a 10% discount on most purchases at Omega Sports. You will receive email updates on upcoming events. Your membership fee also automatically makes you a member of our umbrella organization, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA).

Information can also be gathered from our website and our bulletin board at the Wilmington Family YMCA, 2710 Market Street, 28403. The YMCA has been our headquarters since our inception. Any correspondence you might want to send to Club officers should be sent to: P O Box 7396, Wilmington, NC 28406.

If you have questions, please contact any of the Club officers listed on our website, or email me at againes1@ec.rr.com.

Remember that the WRRC is your Club, if you choose to make it so. We encourage contributions to the website, suggestions for new running or social activities, volunteering to help at local road races, and your presence at our open Board meetings.
Like anything else in life, you will get out of it what you put into it.

Happy Running!

Amanda Gaines, Membership Chairman 2013
