About Us

The HRC is a member of Road Runners Club of America RRCA. We are set up as a nonprofit organization, where all proceeds beyond those required to manage the organization or events are donated to a charity agreed upon annually.

The HRC was set up to promote and encourage running as a local fitness option.  The HRC is located in Hendersonville, Tennessee.  The group covers the spectrum of runners from walkers just starting to seasoned Boston Qualifiers.  Our Long Runs (5 - 22 miles) start Saturday mornings from Drakes Creek Park, at 7:00 AM (Nov thru March) and 6:00 AM (May thru October).  The club is well suited to help members and associate members achieve their running goals. Toward those ends, the HRC promotes, conducts and supports local races or other running activities; disseminates information on running; makes awards; offers management guidance to thru group runs; and does related activities with other local organizations. We help build and train for marathons, half marathons, 10ks, 5Ks  and assist triathletes in the running portion of their training.

No fees, no rules, just the desire to run and help "Build Friendships in Motion" . We are people who like to run and do it with others.


The HRC follows closely the bylaws, club governance  and management guidance of the RRCA.  The BYLAWS
