Since 2004, CRC Elite has been there to support central Ohio's aspiring elite runners. Members of the team have won marathons, run sub-4 miles, and qualified to the U.S. Olympic Trials. The sport of long distance running takes perseverance and dedication, and the CRC is there to support our hardworking elite-level runners every step of the way.
Members of CRC Elite must run under a qualifying standard in order to join the team. Once you run under that time, you can earn gear, race entries, and further support - and the support increases as you then run faster and faster within our tiered sponsorship system. Interested in full details? Complete the team registration form here once you've run under one of the team standards and we'll be in touch.
Not quite at those qualifying times? CRC Elite's group runs are open to anyone, so come run with us as you work to chase those bigger goals.
We're runners. We measure success in numbers and stats - but it goes beyond that.
Yes, CRC Elite athletes have qualified for the Olympic Trials in 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020. The team has racked up victories too, winning races ranging from our hometown Columbus Marathon to the Drake Relays Mile to the Pisa Marathon in Italy. We've cheered our teammates along to sub-4 miles and we've seen our runners race at both USATF indoor and outdoor track nationals. We've compiled a record book that we're proud to rewrite again and again and we've celebrated big highlights year-in and year-out.
But we've also created memories, having a ton of fun along the way. From road trips to Chicago for the Shamrock Shuffle to long runs along the Olentangy Trail, CRC Elite is a team of runners who share big goals and big moments. Join us and become part of a tradition of success.
