RRRC's Amy Garber won the "Dash for the Cash" at Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K

Amy Garber, RRRC member and participant in RRRC's Advanced 10K Training, presented by Active Chiropractic, earned $2,500 by easily beating the field in the 6.2-mile race. She was randomly picked by Sports Backers and given about a 2.5-mile head start based on her projected time and the times of some of the top runners. RTD Story

Become a RVA Plogger

Plogging...The term is a mash-up of jogging and the Swedish “plocka upp,” meaning pick up. In this case, litter. 

What better time than now to do a little Spring cleaning of the streets and trails along which we run regularly. RRRC's President Ralph Gibbs encourages all RRRC members to shake up their running with a little "plogging."  Some runners like Mark "Iscool" Guzzi have been ploggers for years...Mark just called it packing out the trash when on his trail runs. 

See this Washington Post article for more on plogging.
