RRC is committed to helping people realise their ‘active lifestyle’ goals by not only assisting them to get out running regularly, but also to move up to competitive running events. The scope of these events is virtually boundless, ranging from relatively quick 5ks through to marathons and beyond. The Club also enters teams in ‘obstacle’ events, such as the Wolf Run and family races such as the Santa Fun Run.
