SFRP is the oldest African American running club in the country, starting in 1979. Many of the original member still run with us today!


More than a club, we support our members like family. When we are not running, we stay true to our motto: "Running Partners Have More Fun!"


SFRP uses our skills to support our community through various events like the Sickle Cell Road Race and volunteering in our neighborhoods.

Welcome to SFRP

Welcome to the South Fulton Running Partners!  While we originate in South Fulton County, our runs are throughout the Atlanta area. We welcome you to join us on any of our weekly runs. Visit our calendar, or contact the run coordinator for more information.

Sharing Smiles

We have more fun!  After our runs, stay for the fellowship and camaraderie. Every member hosts a run each year.

Impacting Others

We give back to our community. Our biggest project every year is to raise much needed funds to to support those with Sickle Cell and to help find a cure.

We run for our health. To have a better tomorrow, we run today. Join us, so we can all have happier tomorrows.
