The March-April 2014 Edition of Miles and Minutes has been posted and is available for download under our Newsletter link above.
Road Runners Club of America has announced that Miles and Minutes, the newsletter of the Richmond Road Runners Club, has been selected as RRCA's outstanding print newsletter for 2013.
The award will be presented at RRCA's national convention May 1-4 in Spokane, WA.
Much credit for this award goes to the many members of Richmond Road Runners who take the time to submit written accounts and photos of their experiences for publication. Credit also goes to the club leadership, which continues to provide funding for a publication worthy of entering in national competition, and to graphic designer Melissa Savage of Hampton, who lays out each issue. Special thanks to Ed Kelleher, Editor-in-Chief.
Well done Ed !
Congratulations to all!
You can find the new Miles and Minutes under the Newsletter link on this site.
