Volunteer Rewards Program's 1st Recipients


ImageApril 15, 2019 - Congratulations to the 18 volunteers who were selected at random to receive a gift certificate as a small token of RRRC’s thanks for their volunteer service to the club during the 1st quarter of 2019.

To be eligible for the drawing, a volunteer had to sign up to volunteer in advance (at least 24 hours before the start of the main race) via RunSignUp for one or more of the club races (First Day 5K, Frostbite 15K, Sweetheart 8K or Huguenot 3 Miler). 187 volunteers earned a total of 506 entries in the drawing. Some obviously improved their odds of being selected by having multiple entries, because they: volunteered at more than one race; signed up early to volunteer (by midnight of the fifth day before the race); and/or volunteered for certain positions that earned them extra entries (e.g., course marshal or truck assistant).

Volunteer at one of the three club races during the 2nd quarter (Carytown 10K, Stratford Hills 10K or Thanks Dad 5K) to be eligible for the next drawing. Click here for more details about the Volunteer Rewards Program.

Does RRRC have a Race Team?


ImageYes, we do. It is brand spanking new for 2019.

The RRRC Race Team just ran the first race in a challenge series with race teams from Tri Cities Road Runners and Fredericksburg Area Running Club.

And guess which team took five of their six divisions at the Tri Cities Road Runners Longstreet's White Bank Classic 5 Miler? If you guessed, RRRC Race Team...you are RIGHT. Check out these very impressive results!
 
Next race in the competition is our own RRRC Carytown 10K. Whether running or volunteering, you'll be able to watch and cheer your RRRC Race Team in action...and in their stylish RRRC Race Team gear. #RRRCRT

Special thanks to the RRRC Race Team organizers and coaches, Rosie Schutte and Bill Kelly.

Safe Sport Act Compliance


April 16, 2019 - Road Runners Club of America recently published guidance on what is required of its affiliate clubs (e.g., RRRC) to be in compliance with the “Safe Sport Act" (Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017), which was enacted by Congress and became federal law on February 14, 2018. 

To ensure the Club’s compliance with the Safe Sport Act, the RRRC Board of Directors adopted a Safe Sport Act Compliance Policy and a revision to the Club’s Code of Conduct at its April 10, 2019 meeting.

If you have any questions about the new policy and the change to the Code of Conduct, please contact the RRRC President, Ralph Gibbs, at president@rrrc.org.
