Rochester Runner of the Year Series
2021 RROY Races: Due to COVID-19, many races have been again been cancelled, gone virtual, or otherwise altered for 2021.
There will again be no RROY standings for virtual races and it is highly improbable, but not impossible, that there will be any for those few that go on in person in some way. If that changes, we will announce it on this site, in the GRTC Facebook group, and via the club e-mail list.
RROY races have been a staple in this community, and we encourage everyone to continue running them in whatever form offered. Even without our traditional scoring and award system this year, we will at least acknowledge those of you who are running them in some way. Run as many of them as you can, and stay tuned for details as the year progresses on how each race will be treated.
