Emancipated Run Crew is a running community, with diversity and inclusion at the heart of what we do.  We are a group of runners who support and encourage black and brown runners to meet and exceed their fitness goals.  Our aim is to provide a space and a voice to those who may feel excluded from "mainstream" running community - to show that running is something that can be and should be open to all.

ERC is determined to show there is no such thing as a "typical" runner - whether you consider yourself a curvy girl or guy, at the beginning of your running journey, or someone who is at the peak of their fitness, we have a space for you. We always encourage our members to run their own race: the only person you need to compete with is you. And the only thing we ask you to do is Run Free!
