RRRC Annual Banquet


ImageSaturday, March 2 - RRRC members lifted flutes of champagne to toast the 40-year history of the Richmond Road Runners Club and the promise of continued growth and achievement in the decades ahead. The Meadowbrook Country Club was at capacity to hear an inspiring story of life and running from our guest speaker professional ultra runner Sally McRae.

The highlight of the night were the awards ceremonies.

RRRC's Grand Prix Competition recognized a record number of 103 Grand Prix Finalists for 2018. The Grand Prix Champions were: Open Champions - Gabi Wechsler & Jason Driscoll; Masters Champions - Debbie Goodpasture & Ralph Gibbs; and Grand Masters Champions - Dawn Eberhard & Steve Lerner. The Iron Runner program bestowed the title of Titanium Runner on Gabi Wechsler. Nine other runners achieved Iron Runner status: Bill Anderson, Charles Beverage, Ralph Gibbs, Aaron Harlan, Kelly Harris, Steve Lerner, Jessica Reber, Christian Toro, and Nikkia Young.

Club Race Champions for 2018 received trophies in the open, masters and veterans divisions for their accomplishments at the Frostbite 15K, Carytown 10K, Pony Pasture 5K and Bear Creek 10 Mile Trail Run. Special congratulations go to Jason Dowdy and Doug Fernandez who were the champions in their divisions at all four races.

The night closed with three very special rewards. Lucky Road Run Shop (Jeff & Desiree Van Horn) received the Community Partner Award. The Volunteer of the Year Award was bestowed on Mara George. And Frank Gerloff received the RRRC Spirit Award.

We offer a big THANK YOU to Nancy Jakubec, Diane Glaze Kelley and Rosie Schutte who were the driving forces that organized the banquet and program this year. Thank you to the wonderful staff of the Meadowbrook Country Club who hosted us for a delightful meal with awesome desserts.

Show Off Your RRRC Pride!


ImageWe have a new logo...so we have new decals, a magnet and a bumper sticker to show them off.

Look for them at packet pick up for the Huguenot 3 Miler @ Robious Landing. Get them at the next RRRC Meeting. Or visit the RRRC Booth at the TowneBank Health & Fitness Expo before the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K.

They are FREE if you plan to display them somewhere/anywhere. If you just plan to stick it in a drawer or throw it away, we'll have to charge you $5.00 for each one.
