Hosting RRCA Championship Events
The RRCA Championship designation is awarded for the following distances at the State, Regional, and National level on an annual basis through a competitive bidding process:
- 1 Mile (America’s Distance)
- Half Marathon (13.1 miles)
- Marathon (26.2 miles)
- Ultra (any distance over 26.2 miles)
- Cross Country (variable distance; only one event)
The RRCA may grant additional State or Regional Championship Event distances as requested, but only after the standard distances have been awarded. An event can only be awarded one RRCA Championship designation. However, if the event has multiple distances, the event may be considered for State, Regional or National status for the various event distances.
