RRRC Quarantown 10K - let's run our April 10K virtually!


The Carytown 10K is now the Quarantown 10K!

Although we can't run the streets of Carytown #Ctown10k, we want to give you RRRCers the opportunity to race, run or walk your own April 10K in RVA.

RRRC Quarantown 10K is a Virtual Race

- Run/skip/walk your 10K anytime during the month of April. 
- Report your time or just that you finished, and we'll mail you a commemorative magnet. #QTown10k
- Most importantly, please share your accomplishment on your favorite social media platform as we all want to celebrate your success!

Remember, we don't care how you complete your 10K, just do it -- on the streets, a road, a trail, or a treadmill. You also have #alltheoptions as to how you can complete this. You can do one 10K, two 5Ks, ten 1Ks, 10K worth of loops around your home or apartment building, or even complete 10K equivalent minutes worth of running in place in your living room. Oh, and if you do the latter...you get extra credit! 

Already registered for the Carytown 10K? Check the Quarantown 10K website for your options. On Sunday morning March 22 you also got an email with a personalized link for transferring to the Quarantown 10K or getting a refund.


SignUp   Price: RRRC members $5.00; non-members $10.00 

Note for this virtual event only we included the RunSignup processing fee in the pricing.



A few words from your RRRC Officers

These are challenging times.

We will do our best to continue to engage and connect runners and walkers in the RVA community. We'll be using email and social media to stay in touch. As needed, we'll put on other low-cost virtual events to help keep us all motivated to stay physically active. 

We will work with our race directors to continue the behind-the-scenes planning for upcoming RRRC races so we all can gather on the roads and trails again when that is allowed. Those races may open for sign up later than usual and may be low-frill, but we plan to be ready.

We thank the wise leadership of RRRC over years past. RRRC established and has maintained a healthy financial reserve that will allow this organization to weather these uncertain times. 

We encourage you to stay physically active. We're preaching to the choir, but you know that running and other forms of physical activity offer untold benefits to our own and our communities' well-being.





RRCA's Advice for Runners


First and foremost, please draw on expert medical advice from the CDC and from your state and county's public health agencies. Assuming that you will follow the overarching CDC advice and drawing on public health advisories, the RRCA recommends some basic do's and don't's: 

  • Don’t show up if you are feeling ill or have flu-like symptoms.
  • Don't share fluids. Carry your own fluids to avoid contact with others on course.
  • Don't share towels, food, gels, or any other item that runners normally share freely.
  • Do wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using the port-a-john. 
  • Do not spit or “nose rocket” your nose in public – bring along tissues or a small towel or a good old-fashioned hanky if you need to get rid of some snot during the race.
  • Do practice social distancing - ensure appropriate spacing between runners. The current recommendation is at least six feet of separation.
  • Do avoid close-group selfies.
If you're running indoors at a public facility such as an indoor track, a treadmill studio, or in a gym setting or using gym equipment, including elliptical machines, stair-stepping machines, rowing machines, etc.:
  • Don't go to the gym if you are feeling ill.
  • Don't wipe your eyes, nose, or mouth while running. (It should go without saying that you should not spit or nose rocket indoors.)
  • Do thoroughly wipe down the handrails and monitor before you use the treadmill.
  • Do thoroughly wipe down the handrails and monitor after you finish your workout.
  • Do create space for yourself by trying to use a treadmill at least 6 feet from other treadmills being used.
  • Do wash your own hands when you're done.

RRRC Annual Banquet


ImageSaturday, March 7, 2020 - RRRC's Grand Prix finalists and Club Race Champions gathered for the annual awards ceremony and banquet at the Meadowbrook Country Club.

The highlight of the night was the awards ceremony.

The Grand Prix Champions were: Open Champions - Gabi Wechsler & James Hazelwood; Masters Champions - Rebecca Randolph & Jim Oddono; and Grand Masters Champions - Karen Marsh & Charles Beverage. The Iron Runner program again bestowed the title of Titanium Runner on Gabi Wechsler. Twelve other runners achieved Iron Runner status: Michael Bender, Charles Beverage, Pamela Faulkner, Aaron Harlan, Stephen Kelley, Mark Lohman, James Marr, Randall Miller, Rebecca Randolph, Jessica Reber, John Sicat, and Dawn Walker. 

Club Race Champions for 2019 received trophies in the open, masters and veterans divisions for their accomplishments at the Frostbite 15K, Carytown 10K, Pony Pasture 5K and Bear Creek 10 Mile Trail Run. Special congratulations go to Tressa Breindel who was a champion at all four races.

The night closed with three very special rewards. Road Runner Running Store (Brandon Croft) received the Community Partner Award. The Volunteer of the Year Award was bestowed on Mike Gholson. And Rosie Schutte received the RRRC Spirit Award.

We offer a big THANK YOU to Nancy Jakubec and Suzi Silverstein who were the driving forces that organized the banquet and program this year. Thank you to the wonderful staff of the Meadowbrook Country Club who hosted us for a delightful meal with awesome desserts.
