Donate Your Unused Race Shirts to SHIRTS FOR VETS

ImageRichmond Road Runners Club is supporting a SHIRTS FOR VETS drive in RVA. Military veterans going through in-patient rehab at the Veterans Administration Medical Center's Musculoskeletal and Rehab Clinic need T-shirts for everyday use.

Contribute some of your new or gently-used race shirts to these heroes. 

Donation boxes will be at all three Lucky Road Run Shops and at the Road Runner Running Store in Carytown through December 15.

Thanks to all for their thoughtful contribution, and for supporting those who served in our nation's military forces. Contact Mark Guzzi if you have questions.

Run Safe RVA

"Hey. Let's be careful out there."

Running is great for our physical and mental health, but it has its own set of risks (like everything in life). As runners, there are some basic actions we can take to make our running safer for ourselves and others.

  • UNPLUG - Be aware of your surroundings at all times. 
  • BUDDY UP - Join a running group in your area or recruit a training partner to run with you. Visit RVA Group Runs to see some options.
  • FACE TRAFFIC - Run so you can see cars coming towards you.
  • OBEY TRAFFIC SIGNALS - Always assume drivers cannot see you. 
  • CARRY ID - With your name, an emergency contact name and phone number, and pertinent medical information like allergies.
  • CARRY A CELL PHONE - Have the ability to call 911 at any moment. 
  • ALTER YOUR RUN ROUTE DAILY - It is better for safety and for your fitness. 
  • SEE AND BE SEEN - Look for runs in well populated areas frequented by other runners. If you are running in the dark, look for well-lit routes, wear reflective clothing and use lights. 
  • LEAVE YOUR ROUTE - Share your route with a friend or family member.
  • IGNORE, IGNORE, IGNORE! - Ignore any verbal harassment. 
  • DEFENSIVE MEASURES - Have a plan. Whatever you carry with you, you need to know how to use it and be able to use it quickly.
