It is clear-the-shelves time at the RRRC Club House...so the supply is limited...and not all sizes and colors are available. Wegmans Turkey Trot 10K apparel and Turkey Trot 2016 hoodies are available, too. Prices are reasonable. Items will be shipped to you, or save on shipping by picking up your order at a RRRC monthly meeting

Upcoming RRRC Races, Volunteer Opportunities & Events

Volunteering at Races

See a race from a new perspective by helping the Richmond Road Runners Club at the finish line, along the course or at race registration/check-in. RRRC is all volunteer and needs help from RRRC members and non-members to promote running in the Richmond area. We support our own Club races and provide race services for many community races. New volunteers are welcome. No experience is necessary! There will be people to help you at the race.

Want to volunteer at a Club race? Visit the race's website and click on the "Volunteer @ Race" menu tab.

RRRC College Scholarship Program

The Richmond Road Runners Club has an annual scholarship program for Richmond-area high school seniors who have and will represent the beneficial aspects of running as a healthy lifestyle. The application and supporting documentation for the 2017 college scholarships had to be submitted by midnight May 30, 2017.

At the 2017 Pony Pasture 5K, RRRC awarded $2,000 scholarships to two (2) students: Jake Scott Dehetre, a cross-country and indoor/outdoor track runner for Atlee High School, and Laurel Goodpasture, a cross-country and indoor/outdoor track runner for Trinity Episcopal School.
