New CRC Men's Singlets available


CRC has been working with Podiumwear to produce new CRC mens singlets as there have been a lot of issues with getting the right type of singlet through our normal channels due to supply chain issues. They have created a storefront for CRC so you can order the singlet and it will be shipped directly to your home.

Orders will be accepted until midnight January 23rd and it will take 5 weeks for the singlets to be made.

The singlets are 100% polyester knit and semi-form fitted. Use the sizing chart before ordering as they are made custom to order and cannot be returned.

Here's a link to the storefront

https://www.podiumwear.com/team-storefront/charlotte-running-club/

Storefront code is : RunCRC2022

The singlet is $35 + $9.45 for processing & shipping

Price: $35

Fast shipping $5

Sizes : Small, Medium, Large, X-Large

Our mission: Building a Strong and Healthy Community Through Running

The Charlotte Running Club consists of passionate runners that strive to spread the love of running and to help each other grow. The Club's goal is to bring the expansive, diverse, and exciting Charlotte running community together under one umbrella through motivation, group runs, and social events. 

Our club represents an incredibly diverse population, from lifelong competitive runners to couch-to-5k-ers and everyone in between. We all found running for different reasons and at different times in our lives, but we all now share a collective interest in making Charlotte a better place to run. Over the coming months and years, CRC is committed to helping to drive that transformation by connecting our members to:

  • Running Opportunities. From fun runs to workouts to races, we help connect runners to events and activities for runners of all ages and abilities.
  • Social Opportunities. You can't run all the time, so we provide fun and engaging opportunities for runners to socialize away from roads, tracks, and trails.
  • Community Involvement. Whether we're volunteering at a local park, coaching and mentoring with community running organizations, or advocating for runner safety, we strive to help make Charlotte a better place to run.
