RRCA Buyer Beware Tips
As the popularity of running continues to grow, so does the number of events held each year around the country. This is a good thing for our sport; however, as with all growth industries, there are inevitably going to be a few bad apples that can spoil a barrel, as the old saying goes.
As more and more events are launched, the RRCA Board of Directors offers the following advice to help runners intelligently pick events, especially if you are looking for a great out-of-town event to run that also happens to be a new event.
Etiquette for Runners
In the interest of promoting an enjoyable running and racing experience for everyone, the Road Runners Club of America encourages good runners’ etiquette. Whether running in a group or running alone, always follow the RRCA Safety Guidelines.
Whatever the pace, wherever the race, manners matter.
Birmingham Water Stops
Hydration is important at all times of the year. Want to stay hydrated but dislike carrying a water bottle? Don't want to set out water along your route? Check out this map showing some of the water fountains and water coolers in the Birmingham metro area.
