Moreno Valley Running Club (MVRC) promotes running as a means of healthy exercise through distance running/sprinting/jumping and walking. MVRC members are groups of people of all ages and running abilities who enjoy sharing running experiences with each other. MVRC is a running club for those seeking to run with a group and are looking to get in shape to compete in a race or just a neighborhood walk. MVRC encourages runners to learn proper running techniques, proper stretches and race preparation through our running summer and winter FUN RUN camps in the seasons of cross country and track and field.  Athletes start as little as 5 yrs old. Come join us.

Riverside County has sent out new guidelines allowing club sports to continue with restriction. Clubs like ours should make sure all participants are at least 6 ft apart and wear a face mask at all times during stretching and light conditioning. When running , like in our case, all runners should be within 6 ft from each club member. Any club member with COVID 19 symptoms: fever, cough, cold, feels ill and/or been in contact with someone who recently been COVID 19 positive, should remain home and return after 14 days. MVRC will be checking temperatures at the beginning of each practice, any club member with a temperature of 100.4 or above will be sent home.
