The National Road Racing League (NRRL) blog will be your stop for all the news and announcements related to the only running league in the country geared toward team competition across states. By now you've probably visited the NRRL website, but in case you missed it, check it out and be sure to watch the introduction video on the home page.
In its inception in 2011, the NRRL will only have 1 region competing in the U.S., the Washington, DC metro area. The DC area was recently ranked as the fittest city in the country for the 3rd straight year by the ACSM and is therefore proud to be the testing ground for the NRRL. The league will grow by leaps and bounds each successive year until every city, town, or region in the country can be represented and a true "meet of champions" can take place each Fall.
The primary goal of the NRRL is to provide runners with a competitive outlet unlike anything to come before it, so that the team element of running can be put back into the sport. This league is for everyone, not just the "elites." The secondary reasons for founding the NRRL are endless and varied, just as you're probably thinking, "It is about time running had a formal league."
So, tour the website, talk to your club, coach, or training buddies, and shoot us an email to let us know if you'd like the NRRL to come to your town!
Wishing your team a Happy New Year,
NRRL President & Founder
