Ancient City Road Runners

Our Legacy

The club was first established in 1982 when some like-minded persons saw the need for a running club in our city. The Constitution for the club states: “The prime objective of this association shall be the promotion and encouragement of long-distance running and the education of the public to its benefits.”

Weekly Group Runs

If you're curious whether ACRR is for you, this is where you start! Join us for one of our weekly runs as a group, where all ages and running paces are welcome — even walkers! After putting in your hard-fought miles, we usually gather for optional socializing and recovery at a coffee shop or bar!

Local & Destination Races

ACRR members participate in, volunteer for, and cheer on fellow runners in races around the world — starting with our very own Matanzas 5K. Each year, the club also organizes a "destination race" trip for members and family, with previous locales including Chicago, San Antonio, and Key West!

Club Social Events

Expect birthday socials, Christmas caroling outings, and participation in community events with the coolest club around. Each year, ACRR also organizes two or three Hash Runs — where costumes and frivolity are mandatory!

Our Stats

We honor our mission by hosting group runs weekly, a local 5K race (the Matanzas 5000) annually, and several Hash Runs throughout the year. We also sponsor a running camp for middle and high school students every summer, and we proudly represent our ACRR colors as we volunteer and/or participate in races around our beautiful city, state, and globe!
