RRRC's Grand Prix is a competition designed to keep you challenged and motivated to continue running throughout the year. Grand Prix is open to all ages and costs nothing to join, but you must be a registered member of RRRC and you must SIGN UP. This program rewards you for activities that you are already doing, running and volunteering. By completing the program, you are considered a Finalist, and receive a high quality gift and a free invitation for you and a guest to our annual banquet.

Want to go for Iron Runner or Titanium Runner...and some extra swag and bragging rights? First, you must SIGN UP for Grand Prix. Then you must run all of the club races (except for one) plus meet the other Grand Prix Finalist criteria. See the Grand Prix rules for the details.
Thank you for joining us today for RRRC's Bear Creek 10 Mile Trail Run. We hope you enjoyed your trail run through the forests of Bear Creek Lake State Park and Cumberland State Forest. We promised that the "the trail crosses several creeks, has numerous short hills and includes some challenging sections with fallen trees across the path and roots and mud underfoot." We hope you weren't disappointed.

We offer a SPECIAL THANK YOU to Barry Kreisa on his last year as the race director of the Bear Creek 10 Mile Trail Run. He carried on the traditions of the race over the years and has now trained his successors (yep...two needed to replace him) to carry the torch for this unique Richmond Road Runners Club race. Thanks to the VOLUNTEERS at the water stops and road crossings and at check-in and the finish line. And finally, thank you to the rangers and staff of Bear Creek Lake State Park.
