RRCA Championship Event Series

Since 1958, the RRCA has awarded championship events through a competitive bidding process at the National, Regional, and State level to RRCA member clubs and events to promote the sport of distance running.  The RRCA Championship Event Series is the largest grassroots organized running series in the US, attracting over 320,000 runners each year.  The goal of the RRCA Championship Event Series is to shine a spotlight on well-run events and to award top performing runners in the open, masters (40+), grand masters (50+), and senior grand masters (60+) categories for both men and women.  Find all RRCA State Championship events on the RRCA Event Calendar by using the “RRCA Championship” filter option when you search events.

RRCA Database of Champions

In 2007, the RRCA began the task of maintaining a database of RRCA Champions for our National Championship events. The RRCA Regional and State Champions are also maintained in this database which is updated on a voluntary basis by the RRCA State Reps. Our goal is to continue to build a database of RRCA Champions to highlight running as a competitive sport. If you are a recent RRCA Champion and your name is not listed, and you would like to be included in this database, please contact your local State Rep to ensure your RRCA Championship event is recorded.

We invite you to review the most recent accomplishments of the RRCA Champions.
