Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
RRRC is again hosting a running program for new runners - people just getting started or re-started with running. This program will start in April 2016 and last 8 weeks. The first run is a mile +/- (and if you need to start as a walk/run, that's OK). At the end, participants will have the option to complete a local 5K race!
Group will meet Tuesday nights beginning April 12, 2016 at 6PM at Bryan Park. Exact meeting place will be sent via email to runners in advance of April 12. Runners will receive an 8-week training plan which includes the Tuesday group runs and other runs and walks during the week to be done on your own. We may have a Saturday AM (optional) group run as well depending on runner interest. Water will be provided at all group runs.
If you've wanted to start or re-start running, come on out and join us. All paces are welcome. If you've never run before - that's OK. Our coaches are ready to work with all runners regardless of pace.

The Richmond Road Runners Club has established a scholarship program for Richmond-area high school seniors involved in running or related activities. This year the RRRC will award two (2) $2,000 scholarships to students who have and will represent the beneficial aspects of running as a healthy lifestyle. Each RRRC scholarship will be a one-year, non-renewable award of $2,000. You do not need to be a member of RRRC to apply.
All applications and documentation must be received on or before midnight, May 30, 2016.
Two members of the Richmond Road Runners Club have been selected as national winners in the Road Runners Club of America's 2015 competition.
Doug Fernandez was named Runner of the Year in the Male Master category. Past president Michael Muldowney was named Club President of the Year.
RRCA has about 2,400 member clubs and roughly 250,000 members nationwide.
Please join us in congratulating Doug and Michael on a job well done.
For some of these, volunteers are needed. Please see our volunteer information at Volunteer Details
