The Road Runners MC is one of Poland's outlaw motorcycle clubs.


The beginnings of the Road Runners MC go back to 1978. In the beginning, its name was VC 1978, which by the abbreviation for Veteran Club 1978. The name and today's colors of the club were only adopted a few years later. The name Road Runners descends from a brand of motorcycle tires, preferred by the club members at the time. The back-patch design was chosen with a winged wheel and black and yellow club colors. The Road Runners MC is the oldest Polish-born motorcycle club. Over the years, the club, originally from Silesia, expanded across Poland. In 2005 the founder and president of the club, Miroslaw Miro Stefanczyk, died. He is instrumental in the formation of motorcycle and rocker scene in Poland and was a legend during his lifetime among Polish motorcyclists. His funeral was attended by motorcycle riders from all over the world. The Road Runners MC is one of the founders and board members of Kongres Polskich Klubów Motocyklowych, an umbrella organization of Polish motorcycle clubs.

Alleged criminal activity

Multiple individual members of Road Runners MC have been suspected at times to be connected with various criminal activities. Several members, among them the club's Board of Directors, were arrested in December 2006 by the Polish Centralne Biuro Śledcze (CBS, the national investigative authority). The indictment was, among other things, on charges of forming a criminal organization. The suspicion was not confirmed, and all but one member — who died while in custody in unexplained circumstances, — were released from remand in 2007. The media reports surrounding the arrest were criticized by Polish director and filmmaker Sylvester Latkowski. Latkowski is planning to create a film about the motorcycle club members he claims to have met in person. In Austria, there was a reaction from the authorities on the establishment of the Vienna Prospect Chapter. A search by the Vienna police of the club's premises in the 16th district of Vienna, as well as the apartments of some members of the club, found numerous firearms, a bat and stabbing weapons. According to the Austrian police there were also found "traces of drugs, particularly amphetamines", which is disputed by the members of the club. The investigation is still ongoing.
