Review for Road Runners Club of America Inc, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

The RRCA promotes running and a healthy lifestyle to its members through their affiliation with the numerous running clubs throughout the country. I have participated in many running events around the country and the RRCA makes these races possible by providing insurance to these clubs that host the races.
Road races used to have male runners as their largest percentage of participants, but in recent years that has changed to where females are sometimes the largest participant category. I would say this change has been brought about through efforts of the RRCA.
As the RRCA continues to reach out and support youth running programs I believe they can greatly affect the health of America's adolescents and the future obesity rate of adults.
"Get 'em while they're young". I'm a firm believer in that statement. If we can develop and instill a love of running/exercising in our youth, we will give the future adults a way to stay active and healthy throughout their life.
