Pike Creek Valley Running Club
PCVRC (www.pcvrc.com)was founded in 1982 by runners who resided in the Pike Creek area of New Castle County, Delaware.
Our club is dedicated to promoting physical fitness through running. Although comprised primarily of Delaware runners from the Newark and Wilmington areas, we have members from other parts of Delaware and surrounding areas of Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
We welcome runners of all levels of ability from beginning joggers to the highly competitive road racer to marathoners. Walkers are also welcome. PCVRC currently has over 140 families and individual members. We are a social club and very supportive of all our member’s running goals. Most importantly, we have a great time running.
Your direct donation to PCVRC can be tax deductible, since we are a 501(3)c non-profit due to our affiliation with Road Runners Club of America (RRCA).
