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.

Richmond 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.

Sunday, October 28 - The first Poop Loop 4ish Miler treated 70ish runners to an evening amble from Ancarrow's Landing, along the Slave Trail and Floodwall paths, to the Manchester climbing wall overlook and back. While the race started in twilight, the headlamps came in handy as the runners completed the course. Hopefully next year, the Poop Loop trails will be dry on race night so that everyone can enjoy the headlamps bouncing through the woods.
Congratulations to the top finishers of the Poop Loop 4ish Miler!
And a BIGish THANK YOU to all who made it happen - the VOLUNTEERS, the officers of the City of Richmond Police Department. Thank you to our run shop supporter Road Runner Running Store for race prizes. And a special thank you to co-race directors Crystal Koch and Jake Wiseman.
