COVID-19 Developments

2020 ARRC Season & Membership Information

Thank you for your patience waiting to learn how the Anderson Road Runners Club is moving forward with COVID-19.

Our biggest challenge has been determining the best way to get back to walking and running together in a safe manner while connecting and supporting each other.

As the veil of caution is slowly being lifted, we are able to resume some of our club activities with significant modifications.

Please be mindful of other club members and the protocols we are putting in place as COVID-19 is still looming out there.

Together we can pursue our common goals and show our strength and fortitude.

News: Two Ways You Can Participate

Traditional Format - for those ready to gather in a group with social distancing measures

·        Please keep in mind, this is unchartered territory for our club and we will do what is necessary to begin the runs in an organized responsibly distanced fashion.

·        Depending on the number of members that attend, we may implement a staggered start and/or self-seeding in addition to the markers

·        The clock will be available for those that don’t use personal timing devices

·        After the run begins, please use care when passing others

·        Finish your run or walk and provide your time at the table

Virtual Format for those who are not yet comfortable to gather in a group or have scheduling difficulties on Thursdays

You can still participate- here is how:

·        Walk or run the 2.64 Shadyside course any time before Thursday’s traditional format  (Friday through Thursday)

·        A log book will be placed near the Activity Center door overhang for you to record your name and your finish walk/run time

·        You may walk/run the course as many times as you like each week, just log your best time in the log book

·        Reporting and logging your time is “on your honor” using your own recording device

Road Series

Many of the Road Series races have been canceled; We will be discontinuing the Road Series this year and restarting in 2021.

Virtual Run Challenges

As a way to continue practicing social distancing as well as explore new areas of our City, we will be setting up Virtual Races. Stay tuned to the ARRC Facebook page for details. The challenges will span 2 weeks and take you to different locations to explore less frequented areas. There will be one winner per Virtual Race who will receive a $25 gift card to a local business.

Strava

Strava is a user friendly web and mobile app that the Club is encouraging members to use. Strava has a club feature we can use to connect and support each other. Search for the Anderson Road Runners Club on Strava!
