Update on RRRC's COVID-19 Precautions

On May 28, 2021, Virginia Executive Order 79 (2021) and Order of Public Health Emergency 10 "Ending Commonsense Public Health Restrictions Due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)" goes into effect.

With the lifting of these restrictions, RRRC will adopt the following practices for RRRC events on or after May 28: 
  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to wear a mask or other face covering outdoors at RRRC races, training programs, or other events.
  • Individuals who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask in the RRRC Club House. 
  • RRRC strongly encourages anyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear a mask when they are not actively running/walking during an RRRC race or training program, especially when they cannot maintain 6 feet distance from other individuals (e.g., check-in, starting corral, finish area). 
  • If you are fully vaccinated but you are still uncomfortable around others, RRRC fully supports you in wearing your face covering at any RRRC event.
  • For packet pickup and other sponsor/host events and locations, RRRC will abide by the requirements of the sponsor/host regarding masks and physical distancing at the host’s business location.
  • RRRC will continue to offer a virtual event with all of our races as long as any COVID-19 prevention restrictions/recommendations remain in effect.

RVA runner selected for the U.S. team for the 24 Hour World Championships

May 11, 2021 - Whitney Richman is one of 12 athletes offered spots to represent the U.S. at the 24 Hour World Championships in October in Romania. On the women's team, she joins Camille Herron, Courtney Dauwalter, Marisa Lizak, Micah Morgan, and Pam Smith.  

In December, Whitney qualified by running 139.69 miles at the Desert Solstice 24 Hour and 100 Mile Track Invitational in Phoenix, Ariz. Midlothian woman runs 130 miles in 24 hours to qualify for world championship (Richmond Times Dispatch, Dec. 24, 2020) Photo credit: Howie Stern.

Whitney has been running extremely well at the ultra distances on the track, road, and trails for many years (UltraSignup). While we may not see her at RRRC's "short" races, we applaud Whitney's athleticism and thank her for being an inspiration to all RVA runners.





Diversity and Inclusion Policy: ACE (Access, Connection, and Experience)

At the Feb. 10, 2021 meeting, Richmond Road Runners Club's Board of Directors voted to adopt the following Diversity and Inclusion Policy: ACE (Access, Connection, and Experience)

Access: We will seek to provide community programs for new, current, and returning runners. We will take actions to ensure our activities are accessible to those who want to join and participate (e.g. a shoe clinic for those in need, membership scholarships on an as needed basis, community coaching sessions, and running group support).

Connection: Richmond Road Runners Club will actively invite other groups throughout the Greater Richmond area to come to our events, our monthly Board meeting to share more about themselves and invite them to become members. We will aim to collaborate with other active run groups to ensure they have the support they need to thrive and use our platform to support and elevate what they bring to the area (e.g., social events with local clubs, having a representative from various groups in the area come to board meetings to inform and develop ideas for the area as a whole).

Experience: Our events will respect each participant from beginning to end. People of all paces will be welcomed and celebrated (e.g., races being walker-friendly, having a sweeper for each event, and keeping the finish line open until the final finisher has arrived).

Within this initiative, we will regularly review our processes, events and policies to ensure they remain equitable for all participants and club members.
