Mission Statement

The mission of the Port City Pacers is to promote health and fitness in the local community through walking and running. The club is committed to promoting and encouraging participation in road races.


The Port City Pacers (PCP) is a local running club committed to promoting and encouraging health and fitness through participation in running and walking. Our races benefit local charities. PCP was organized in Mobile in 1979 as a non-profit chapter of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). It was founded to educate the local community about the benefits of running and walking.

The Port City Pacers produce the nationally acclaimed Azalea Trail Run. Since the first ATR in 1978, the 10K and the 1 and 2-mile fun runs have grown to attract a field of over 10,000 world-class and recreational runners, walkers, and wheelchair athletes.

Each year we produce a series of public races, including the Hurricane Run 5K, the Foodworld Senior Bowl Charity Run 10K and the Old Mobile 8K. The club holds meetings featuring programs about running and fitness. The club also publishes a monthly newsletter, the PaceLetter, to report race results, announce upcoming events, and share other news of interest to the running community.

Would you recommend Port City Pacers?

by Will W. (October 13, 2008)
In the latest Running USA's National Runner Survey when asked what factors will determine event participation in the future, one was Reputation of event/organizers. Mobile has a good balance of race distances, a reputable running club that knows how to conduct races, and year round weather that permits you to exercise outdoors. The Port City Pacers work hard to meet and exceed your expectations in the Mobile racing community. Many participate in the races and the very fact they run and walk is the important thing as the results of study after study show that running, walking, and exercise make you feel better, keep you healthier, and do indeed help you live longer. Continued participation by all of us along with needed volunteers will keep races on the calendar and fitness on our minds in the years ahead.

The Port City Pacer organization is comprised of a diverse group of individuals who come together many times throughout the year to put on races so that the community will have an opportunity to better themselves, physically. The volunteers give up their time on Saturday mornings to put on a first-class racing event for participants and spectators to enjoy. I would highly recommend volunteering for this worthy organization.
