ARC Founders
This is where it all began,
circa 1982.  
ARC members
We are an award winning
fluid station for 2
0 years and
The Rev. Clarence Wallace
Community Partners Award
We are proud to have been inducted
into the National Black Marathoner's
Association  Hall of Fame in the
class of 2015 as the oldest
organized African American running
club in the nation.  The youth of
Avondale are our passion.  They are
why we do what we for our own
health and wellbeing and for theirs
as well.
If you walk or run for fun; if you are in training for a competition; if you enjoy the
urban core and its people; if you like to volunteer to help out the community; if
you want to in better condition -  you'll find willing ARC clubs members to
participate with you.  

If you wish to join ARC please drop us a note on the Contact Us Page. Our
membership leader will contact you immediately.
Annual Membership fee is $15.00 which is collected each New Year's Day at
our annual Run Brunch.  We start each year off with a brisk walk or run no
matter the weather and enjoy good food and friends.
