Welcome to the Belleville Running Club (BRC). The BRC, informally organized in 2005, was founded with the simple goal of trying to assemble like minded individuals (runners) to share the often mundane task of the "long run".
We are a nonprofit running club sanctioned by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Our mission is to promote running and encourage runners in the Belleville, IL area through the hosting of races, fun runs, lectures, and social events.
Membership is open to anyone who wants to participate. We welcome all ages and abilities.
Although we'd rather not charge membership fees, necessary things such as insurance, RRCA membership, not-for-profit status, etc, do cost money.
Membership fees in 2017 will remain as they were in 2016:
Family membership (two or more related family members in same household)--$20
Membership is per calendar year (1/1 through 12/31).
- year-round social activities

- group runs
- discounts on local races
- discounts at area sports related retailers
- periodic newsletter (coming soon)
- RRCA membership
- RRCA Footnotes publication
|Additional Club Information|
The BRC is involved in the in the Belleville Chili Cookoff, the annual River to River Relay, St Clair County's Get Up and Go campaign, and participates the city's adopt-a-trail program. Our feedback has led to improvements on the city's bike trail. We now meet for group runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and we often get together for social gatherings after Thursday night runs. Large groups of members have even traveled to out of town races in Chicago, Memphis, Columbus, etc.
Regular meetings are held monthly (see our website for current information) and are open to members, friends, and the public. BRC running gear is available for purchase through the BRC website.
