The Original Holly Springs Run Club
While Pace Yourself Run Company manages multiple run meetups throughout the week through the “Pace Yourself Run Clubs” Facebook group, it was certainly not the first Holly Springs Run Club. The original “Holly Springs Run Club” (aka HSRC), was around before PYRC came to town. In fact, Pace Your Run Company was started by a group of friends who met sharing miles, smiles, and maybe a few beers, through the Holly Springs Run Club.
The first Holly Springs Run Club run took place on June 14th, 2014 with a simple post on a new Holly Springs Run Club Facebook page by local runner Mark Campbell, which sparked a few runners to meet up in a local grocery store parking lot to start their Saturday morning run together. What started as one Saturday morning a month, soon was two, then every Saturday. Along the way, a weekly Thursday evening run started at the local Bombshell Beer Company taproom, and a weekly “Pole-to-Pole” 5-mile run started on Wednesday Mornings. As the Holly Springs Run Club Facebook page grew (eventually to over 2800 members), more group meetups popped up almost every day of the week – the “Slow Poke Club”, “Daytime Run Club”, “Hills for Breakfast”, “Sunday Funday”, “Pizza Run”, “Tapline Run Club”, and others.
It was the Holly Springs Run Club that started it all, bringing the runners of Holly Springs together. Many friendships and connections endure from the original Holly Springs Run Club, which started that one random Saturday Morning.
