The Southeast Running Club is one of the nation's premier running clubs. SERC was founded in 1975 by runners with the purpose of promoting the enjoyment of running to as many people as possible. Over the years, SERC has put on local races, held many social events and provided training opportunities for novice and competitive runners.

SERC's main focus has always been weekend club group training runs. We meet on Saturday and Sunday mornings and also hold group runs during the week, such as Tuesday track workouts at Solon and Independence high schools starting in March.

While runners of all abilities are welcome, SERC has long-maintained a competitive tradition and many members are top finishers in local races. Today, our membership includes several accomplished Boston marathoners, triathletes and ultrarunners. The club often travels to spring and fall marathons, including the Boston, Chicago and Columbus marathons and other races. Many of us run the local Cleveland and Akron marathons, the Buckeye Trail 50K, the Burning River and Mohican 100 mile endurance runs, and other races of all distances.

Anyone with an interest in running is welcome to join SERC. To be an official member, a $10 annual contribution is required. Each year, the club elects new officers at our annual banquet. While the club officers maintain some overall structure, the structure is informal and the backbone of the club is running together.
