About the Twin City Track Club


The Twin City Track Club (TCTC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting running and fitness in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina area since 1977. We are North Carolina's oldest running club and one of the largest clubs in the Southeast. Our members are a cross-section of the community, representing runners and walkers of all abilities. We have group activities to promote the social aspects of running, and bring in nationally known speakers to educate and inspire, and we assist other organizations with their organized running events. We are a proud member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) and United States Track and Field (USATF).

TCTC Mission and Vision Statements

Concurrent with its 30th anniversary, Twin City Track Club adopted new mission and vision statements to guide planning and activities over the coming years and decades. We are proud of our 30 year history and the contributions we have made to running in the Winston-Salem area. Our hope is to continue our heritage of positive impact in our community through our activities, events, and services. The following statements were approved by the TCTC Board on August 20, 2017.

Mission: To inspire and support all runners in our community

Vision: We aspire to build a healthy and socially connected community through running events, activities, support and information

We look forward to engaging all TCTC members to embrace and demonstrate our commitment to these aims.


Mistletoe Run Half Marathon and 5K Race


The Mistletoe Run begins and ends at the William G White Jr Family YMCA and features a one mile Fun Walk/Run, a 5K & a Half Marathon. Our Mistletoe 5K runners travel through Winston-Salem’s beautiful Buena Vista neighborhood, while the half marathon course will continue through the Graylyn International Conference Center, Reynolda House and Gardens, through Reynolda Village, onto Wake Forest University’s campus, then circle back around to the Y.

Twin City Track Club Winter Seminar with Des Linden


Kick off the first weekend of 2023 with a fun filled weekend featuring speaker Des Linden!  The TCTC Winter Seminar will coincide with the Frosty Fifty race weekend.  Des Linden will run the Frosty Fifty 25K race followed by afternoon and evening events with Des.  Click here for more information and to sign up.

Note: We have reached our max capacity for the Mix and Mingle and have opened up a waiting list.  We may be able to open up a few more spots later on once we determine how many spots will be filled by sponsors and other special guests.  Those on the wait list will be given the first shot at any new spots that are opened on a first come, first serve basis.

Due to strong demand, we have expanded capacity for the Seminar Speech/Q&A Session by moving from the Auditorium to the Atrium in Wake Forest Biotech Place at Innovation Quarter. We can now accommodate at least 200 people for the speech at 7:30pm on January 7.

The $5K is designed as a low-key race for the athletes who want to run a tune-up race to prepare for their targeted event, the novice who may be intimidated by the larger events and runners/walkers who want an event to test themselves without breaking the bank.
