Education and Advocacy
The RRCA promotes guidelines designed to educate and keep runners safe in any condition from the race environment to a group run to going it alone. Promoting safe running for all is our top priority.
Safety and access to the sport of running for individual runners has been a cornerstone of the RRCA since 1958. To help educate runners, the RRCA has developed a variety of guidelines and safety tips on various topics related to runners’ safety including our Guidelines for Leading a Group Run and Guidelines for Safe Event Management. In addition, the RRCA has a training program that certifies individuals to be adult distance running coaches. Learn more about the RRCA Coaching Certification program.
