The success of the RRCA and its clubs and events is based on volunteerism.
Since its inception in 1958, the RRCA has relied on the spirit of volunteers to carry out programs, find sponsors, hand-out water, work finish lines, and many other important tasks. It is in recognition of these volunteers that the RRCA developed the National 2000 Hours Outstanding Volunteer Recognition program.
The purpose of the 2000 Hours Outstanding Volunteer Recognition program with the RRCA is to shine a spotlight on individuals that have volunteered over 2000 hours of their time over a period of time to the sport of running. Club presidents, volunteer coordinators, RRCA State Reps, etc. can submit the names of three individuals per year per club or event for the Outstanding Volunteer Recognition Program. Submissions will be collected throughout the year, and all recipients will receive a certificate and official RRCA hat.
Without volunteers, our clubs and events would not be as successful at promoting running in their communities.
