RRCA Announces 2022 National Running Award Recipients

 Since 1971, the RRCA has honored the service and dedication of outstanding leaders in the running community.  These individuals and organizations made significant contributions to the sport in 2022 by overseeing a return to in-person events, keeping runners engaged and motivated, and by having outstanding individual performances in races.

We are delighted to celebrate the RRCA National Running Award recipients at the upcoming RRCA National Running Awards Breakfast and Ceremony on March 25, 2023 in Chicago, Illinois.
