Here are some of the benefits the Charlotte Running Club receives from the RRCA:

As the club has continued to grow, it became increasingly clear that we needed insurance to protect our organization.  The RRCA provides one of the best and least expensive insurance plans available, one with an obvious expertise and emphasis on running and running-related events.

The RRCA Online Community:
We're no longer an isolated entity!  By joining the RRCA, our club is instantly plugged into the national running community with easy access to resources for our board of directors, coaches, event directors, and, of course, runners!

Charity Fundraising:
We hope to begin giving more to charitable organizations and the RRCA makes this easier than ever.  They provide online services which will allow our club to easily collect and distribute charitable donations.

RRCA National Awards:
Our club is now eligible to receive national RRCA awards.

These are just a few of the services now available to us through membership in the Road Runners Club of America.  Check
