Founded in 1983, the Essex Running Club takes pride in being one of New Jersey's friendliest running clubs.

We welcome people of all ages and abilities—health-conscious runners and walkers seeking to get in shape, stay motivated and improve their fitness; competitive runners interested in training, racing, and team events; and adventurous trail runners, ultra runners, and multisport athletes.

What brings and keeps us together, besides exercise, is information, advice, and support; fun and exciting events; camaraderie, friendship, and community. ERC is both a running club and a social club!

The Essex Running Club welcomes you! Come run with us and share the road with friends!
