National Running Awards Reception and Gala

Celebrating the contributions of dedicated leaders and volunteers in our sport.

Donate Items for the RRCA Live & Silent Auction

A great way to support RRCA programs is by donating race entries or items of value to the Live or Silent auctions.  Historically the auctions have raised over $10,000 annually to support the Roads Scholar Fund, the Kids Run the Nation Fund, and the State Reps Fund.  We are asking running clubs, event members, and industry supporters to donate items to the Live & Silent Auctions.  While race entries for sell-out events are very popular, we are also seeking donations of a large variety of items.  Smaller items may be combined into larger gift packages, so don’t hesitate to keep those items in mind.  Convention attendees will have the opportunity to view silent auction items starting on March 18 with bidding ending on March 19 at 7:15pm at the conclusion of the National Running Awards Reception.

National Running Awards Reception

Convention attendees will enjoy a complementary wine or beer at the cocktail reception for the National Running Awards Reception beginning at 5:30 PM.  A cash bar will also be available.  Attendees are encouraged to compete with their fellow runners to out bid them on items in the Live and Silent Auctions.

Starting at 6:00 PM, we start the competition by hosting the Live Auction, which raises funds for the Roads Scholar program.  Attendees will have the chance to compete against their friends in this all out battle to capture the best items known to runners. The Silent Auction will close at 7:15 PM following the end of the Live Auction at 7:00 PM to help ensure everyone can go home with an item in support of RRCA programs.

Visa, Master Card, and American Express, cash, and checks are all acceptable forms of payment for the auctions.  So come prepared to beat out your competition while supporting great RRCA programs.

National Running Awards Gala Dinner

National Running Awards Gala Dinner will begin around 7:00 PM Central.  At this dinner we will celebrate the 2016 RRCA Hall of Fame inductees along with the outstanding contributors to our sport earning an RRCA National Running Award.  We will offer a cash bar during dinner.  Be sure to join this event to get a final commemorative convention gift and learn about the 59th RRCA Convention plans.  Attire is business to semi-formal - but a tie is not required and running shoes are highly encouraged.
