R3 Member Benefits

Scroll through to see the benefits that R3 members enjoy as part of their annual dues.

Road Runners Club of America Membership

RRCA provides event insurance, training programs for coaches, scholarship programs, and they sanction championship events.

Over the last two decades, RRCA has awarded over $750,000 in grants to elite runners.

Group Training Runs

Whatever your running goal(s), R3 has a group for you!

Train for specific races with club members – anything from a Boston Marathon to your first 5K!

We have weekly training runs just for hills, and we also have training groups for different distances based on the race schedule. 

If you don’t see the type of training run you want on the schedule, just ask in our private Facebook group – you’ll find someone willing to run with you!

Race with Your R3 Buddies

After we train together, we run!

Near or far, short or long, small or large, we try to race them all. Come join us and help support the river region racing community and charity events.

As an R3 member, you are also eligible for a DISCOUNT on several races throughout the year.

Be part of a wonderful philanthropic organization. We have contributed thousands to various charities over the years.

Club Meetings and Prizes

Monthly meetings are a mix of business and fun. They are held at local venues to support small businesses.

Annual Lost in Pace awards include towels, mugs, bags, and personalized jackets! 

Pub Runs and Fun Runs

R3 members enjoy a monthly 5K hosted at local businesses. After you run or walk, plan on staying for laughs and libations with friends!

Members are also invited to a variety of club fun runs throughout the year, including a New Year’s Chili Run with an optional polar bear plunge.

Still Hesitant?

Still hesitant to join? Think you’re not a serious enough runner to be a member?
