Since 1958, the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) has awarded championship events through a competitive bidding process at the National, Regional, and State level to RRCA member clubs and events to promote the sport of distance running. The RRCA Championship Event Series is the largest grassroots-organized running series in the U.S. with over 200 races participating that attract nearly 300,000 participants. The goal of the RRCA Championship Event Series is to celebrate and shine a spotlight on outstanding, well managed, locally organized, community focused events and to award top performing runners in the Open, Masters (40+), Grand Masters (50+), and Senior Grand Masters (60+) categories for both men and women by providing them with the sought-after commemorative RRCA Champions’ medal. The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Championship Event Series is one of the oldest traditions in distance running in United States, dating back to 1958, when the RRCA awarded its first championship designation.
