finalsurge.pngARLINGTON, VA – The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) is pleased to announce Final Surge as its diamond sponsor for the 60th Anniversary RRCA Convention, which will be held on April 5-8, 2018 in Washington, DC in conjunction with the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile race.

In 1958, the RRCA was founded with a few member running clubs. That year, only a handful of road races were held nationwide. The athletes that founded the RRCA felt that the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), the governing body for sport at that time, was not interested in serving the needs of distance runners.

Dear Mom,

It hurt. I knew it would. It doesn’t matter what drives you to run a marathon. Running 26.2 miles will always hurt.

Yet, we must go further back.

I remember calling you on a warm February afternoon asking you if you would mind The Post starting a cancer awareness campaign, which would end on Nov. 11 with the Charlotte Marathon. Of course you said yes. Who knew when Racing Against Cancer began in March that you would die in August?
