Who is MARC?


MARC (Metro Area Running Club) is an Atlanta running club that inspires, supports and encourages all abilities to
go beyond the 10k! Join us and take your run to the next level! We add the fun to your run! 

Our members are a diverse group of half marathon and marathon runners who share a common view about running. They believe running with friends is fun, and gives them a chance to grow and challenge their limits, reach new goals and meet new friends! Whether you want a group to train with through those long run miles, to tackle your first half marathon or marathon, or work on a new PR, we can help you meet your goals.



MARC provides:

  • Training plans for the group’s target races in the spring and fall
  • Supported group long runs each Saturday, with developed routes, maps and water/sports drink along the way
  • Weekday run opportunities
  • Education opportunities to learn more about running, nutrition, injury prevention, etc.
  • Access to certified coaches and experienced runners who can answer your training and racing questions
  • Most importantly, a group of fun people to run with!





MARC is an Atlanta-based non-profit running club. You can read more about our board and the club’s organization and policies via the links below.

Supported Weekly Long Runs:

Our Saturday long runs are designed to support targeted races each spring and fall (target race varies). You can tailor your runs with us to accommodate the race of your choice, as well!

Twice a month, we run the Silver Comet Trail and surrounding neighborhoods. On alternate Saturdays, we run in Midtown Atlanta or Buckhead.
