Donate to RunPro Camp
The purpose of RunPro.com and RunPro Camp is to assist promising young distance runners in making the transition from collegiate to professional running. The intent is to provide athletes with a comprehensive overview of what it takes and what is involved in becoming a professional distance runner - competing on the track, the roads and in cross country. This program is funded by contributions and sponsorship support for the the Road Runners Club of America. The RRCA supports all financial aspects of RunPro.com and the RunPro Camp from covering the cost of travel for invited campers and speakers. 100% of your contribution to RunPro Camp will be used to support an emerging, elite athlete's attendance at RunPro Camp.
Donate to the RRCA Roads Scholar Program
Since 1996, the RRCA has awarded grants totaling over $450,000 (as of 2013) through the Roads Scholar® program. The goal of the program is to assist American post collegiate runners who show great promise to develop into national and world-class road running athletes. The grants awarded by the RRCA go directly to the athletes to help support their goals of becoming world-class distance runners. The program is directed towards runners who are US citizens, have graduated from college, plan to pursue elite distance running as a career, and expect to earn less than $30,000 from all sources during the calendar year. The RRCA’s goal is to provide four to six $5,000 grants per year to deserving athletes. Since the programs inception, the RRCA has funded 84 elite athletes.
