March 10: Good Form Running Clinic 8:00am

Click here to Register

For 2018 we are proud to offer free running form clinics on the first Saturday of each month (unless the date conflicts with local race), meeting at the store at 8am.

We will go over principles of natural running form, foot strength and stability, training intensity, and footwear. Each clinic will be led by BDRC owner Daniel Brass, who is a certified running coach with over two decades experience working with runners of all skill levels. These clinics are free and open to the public, just show up and be ready to interact/move : )

At Black Dog Running Company, our goal is simply to help you run better. For some, this is running without pain or injury. For others, its running faster. Or a little farther. Or with more enjoyment. We think running better is all of these things and the discussion needs to go beyond just the gear that we wear.
At BDRC, we are focused on discussing the things that actually matter in helping you improve performance and reduce injury rates. Yes, footwear is important, but just as important is your running form, your training intensity, your recovery and at-home PT and your nutrition. When you come into our store, we will address all these factors as well as your running goals to help you get on the road injury free and with more ease and efficiency.

 

March 15: St. Pats Day 5K and BDRC 1 Mile Pint Run

Save the date and join us for a kickoff run/party for St. Pats Weekend 2018. We will have a marked 5K course from the shop through the Market Common, complete with timing clock at the finish line.

Following the conclusion of the 5K we will also host The BDRC Mile Pint Run. The gist is you run 800 meters, drink a pint and run another 800 meters. The overall top 3 male/females will be rewarded prizes from our friends at Hoka One One.

BDRC will be grilling out and provide refreshments. We are asking that participants bring a small dish to share. Also BYOB if you have a preference for the race/party. Last year we had 70+ runners for this fun event!!

This party will also have a fundraising aim, partnering with a local charity to raise funds for a upcoming Mission Trip. So bring $5 to party, run or both.

April 28: 2018 Relay for Life Conway

Click here for more event information

Join Team BDRC as we partner with the 2018 Relay for Life Conway on Sat April 28th. Join our team (Black Dog Running Co) for the event or donate on the event page

Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.

Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games, and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal.

June 30: Coping Together 5K Wine Fun Run/Walk

Click here to Register

The 1st annual Coping Together 5K Wine Fun Run/Walk will begin and end at La Belle Amie Vineyards located in Little River, SC. Registered participants receive a t-shirt along with free entry (and a complimentary glass of wine) into the July 4 La Belle Amie cookout. T-shirts guaranteed to participants registered by June 18.

Coping Together started in July 2013 by two friends, Michele Hartman and Nan Hasting. Both have been touched by cancer in two very different ways.  Michele’s late husband; Randy Hartman battled cancer for over 20 years, and Nan is a two-time breast cancer survivor. After researching and talking with cancer professionals, both women quickly discovered that there wasn’t a cancer support group in the North Strand of Myrtle Beach. Both decided to form a non-profit support group and thus “Coping Together” was formed because cancer not only affects the patient, but it also the people around them.

Coping Together is a community support group/outreach program for anyone who has been affected by cancer. Attendees include patients, caregivers, survivors, family members and friends. Meetings are held at McLeod Seacoast Hospital on Hwy 9 in Little River the first Monday of each month from 6-7 pm. No meetings are held in June, July & August.

Coping Together is recognized by the American Cancer Society as a support group for the North Strand of Myrtle Beach.

*The course is USATF certified and Second Wind Race Timing will be the official timing company.
