THANK YOUs


BIG THANK YOU to all of the volunteers that made 2019's Thanks Dad 5K a success! The race could not have happened without your presence, smiles and cheers. We especially thank Crystal Koch and all of the other Club officers and directors who stepped up to fill the void when the race directors and the race timer unfortunately had to be out of town because of deaths in their respective families.

THANK YOU to our gold sponsor Lucky Road Run Shop and our bronze sponsor Urban Farmhouse.

Safe Sport Act Compliance


April 16, 2019 - Road Runners Club of America recently published guidance on what is required of its affiliate clubs (e.g., RRRC) to be in compliance with the “Safe Sport Act" (Protecting Young Victims from Sexual Abuse and Safe Sport Authorization Act of 2017), which was enacted by Congress and became federal law on February 14, 2018. 

To ensure the Club’s compliance with the Safe Sport Act, the RRRC Board of Directors adopted a Safe Sport Act Compliance Policy and a revision to the Club’s Code of Conduct at its April 10, 2019 meeting.

If you have any questions about the new policy and the change to the Code of Conduct, please contact the RRRC President, Ralph Gibbs, at president@rrrc.org.
