Welcome to the Lakeland Runners Club!
Proudly Serving Lakeland and the Central Florida Running Community Since 1974.

The Lakeland Runners Club, Inc. is a nonprofit organization and member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), whose mission is to promote running, walking, and general fitness in group settings. We are a running family of more than 600 members that welcomes all ages, abilities, and distances to join us. We have several group runs during the week, one social meeting a month, and other non-running social outings throughout the year.



The Lakeland Runners Club puts on several events and programs throughout the year, including the Mayfaire 5k, the Summer Sunrise Watermelon 5k Series, the Aching Quad Challenge – Four Races in 24 Hours, the Lake to Lake 10k and the Christina 5k . Our events are a great chance to meet other people in the Central Florida running community, test your fitness level, compete and have fun. Come run with us!
