The RRCA is NOT a regulatory body and we do not sanction events. The RRCA National Organization does not provide direct oversight for the conduct of local events. RRCA member events are locally governed, owned and operated. The RRCA does issue guidelines, not rules, for the conduct of safe events and provides a general liability insurance policy that covers certain activities for running clubs and running/walking events.
Review our all of our insurance
information to understand coverage. All events insured by the RRCA are expected to follow the RRCA Guidelines for Safe Events (2010)
. Risk management is one of the primary responsibilities of a race director and following the RRCA Guidelines will help ensure a safer event for participants.
