The club consists of all abilities from beginner to ultra marathoner. The running club also has group training runs for upcoming races from 5k to the marathon. Long runs are weekly. These vary from 6 miles to 24 miles. The courses run by the club can be from 3 miles to 12 miles in loop succession. Our newly paved trail system within the city limits of New Richmond, WI provides a safe and comfortable running experience. Check the "Weekly Running" page of this website for daily run times, location and distance.

The New Richmond Running Club started in 1987 when a few "guys" showed up on a Saturday morning to run a few miles and then eat pancakes at the Next Door Cafe. The actual name " New Richmond Running Club" was coined in 1992 when eight local runners formed a team to participate in the Edmund Fitzgerald 100K Relay. Since then the club has grown and found additional ways to involve all members.
1995 -Started publication of a bi-monthly newsletter with current race results, upcoming events, and helpful running information.
1996 - Initiated a 13-week beginner running program known as First Steps. Over the years, hundreds of people have been introduced to the sport of running.
1999 - Started involvement in the Salvation Army with its Red Kettle Campaign. Each year the NRRC members volunteer as bell ringers.
2001 - NRRC joined the Adopt-A-Highway clean-up program. Twice each year club members clean up a mile of Highway 64.
