Road Runners Club of America Announces 2014 Regional Championship Events

November 20th, 2013

The RRCA Championship Event Series is one of the oldest distance running traditions in the US, dating back to 1958 when the RRCA awarded their first championship designation.  The goal of the RRCA Championship Event Series is to shine a spotlight on well-run, community-based events, and to promote the sport of running by recognizing the top performing runners in the Open, Masters (40+), Grand Masters (50+), and Senior Grand Masters (60+) categories for both men and women as RRCA Champions.

In 2013, the RRCA has had over 165 State Championship races, 26 Regional Championship races and seven National Championship races, for a total of 198 races (and counting) that attracted over 332,000 runners nationwide, making it the largest grassroots-organized, running event series in the United States.  RRCA Championship Events receive sponsorship support from Gatorade as the Official Beverage of the series; Sports Authority as the Presenting Sponsor of the Series; Ashworth Awards a the Official Award Provider for the series; and Coolmax gifts for RRCA champions.

Information about all RRCA Championship Events in the series can be found at www.RRCA.org.
