Racing and Competition
COVID-19 Update (3/21/20): The NVRC has suspended all group runs until further notice. In addition, one NVRC race, the Run Around Egg Hill 10 Miler (April 5) has been postponed to a later date to be announced. Some other races previously on this Calendar have been postponed or canceled. Directors of races in the near future should consider a similar course of action. The following recommendation was sent out by the Road Runners Club of America, of which the NVRC is a member:
RRCA recommends all members, in accordance with the CDC and WH recommendations, to cancel or postpone all events/group training runs/group training programs of 10+ if these activities occur between now and the end of March. You will need to closely monitor government recommendations and be ready to execute cancellation plans for events from April and beyond in the event the ban on gatherings continues.
To viewers of this Calendar: Races listed in the near future may have been postponed or canceled without our knowledge. If you are considering participating in a race in the next couple of months, contact the race director to see if it is still going on.
Every year there are a great many races of all distances in areas all over the state, as well as many in Centre County and the surrounding areas. Distances range from single miles in the Indoor Mile Series, to a 50 mile ultra-marathon at the Tussey mOUnTaiNBACK. To see the results of a recent or past event, check out the Results section. Many of the local races are also sponsored by the club. Details on these races can be found in the Club Sponsored area. Participation in these races and in the club is encouraged through the NVRC Race Series. Finally, the Race Director section has lots of useful information for helping race directors organize a race. If you would like to have a race added to our calendar please go to our Add Event Form.
NOTE: Due to the high volume of requests for event postings, and our desire to provide Central Pennsylvanians with an uncluttered calendar of local events, we regretfully cannot list events outside a 90 mile radius of State College, PA.
