REMINDER: RRCA is accepting nominations for the 2013 RRCA National Running Awards

The outstanding contributors to our sport are recognized at the RRCA Annual Banquet and National Running Awards Ceremony. Each year the RRCA provides a $400 travel stipend and a free ticket for these deserving individuals to attend the banquet and awards ceremony, which will be held on May 3, 2014 in Spokane, WA. Our mailing of Inside Track with a reminder about the awards nomination period was slightly delayed, as a result, we are happy to extend our nomination deadline to midnight on Friday January 24 to give our members plenty of time to submit nominations. Please nominate deserving people and programs from beginners to youth, your outstanding presidents, your favorite races of the year, and more! Nominate a deserving running community leader today!

Please include the name of the event, event date, location, host club, contact name, contact email, and contact phone number with the shirt.
