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).


October $5 5K


The $5- 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.

  • Registration will be capped at 50 people, with two waves of 25 runners that will be kept separate at the event.
  • A waitlist will go into effect after the first 50 people have registered.
  • There will be no on-site registration for the race. You must pre-register at least 24 hours in advance of the race.
  • We will utilize a rolling chip-timed start.  Each participant will be assigned a start time.  Start times will be seeded with faster runners starting first.  You will be asked to submit an estimated time when you register.
  • The first runner will start at 6:00pm with 10 seconds between each runner at the start line.
