Reston Runners Policy on Diversity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism

Reston Runners has and will continue to strongly support our Club and RRCA values and policies of inclusion and non-discrimination.  However, in light of the shocking murders of George Floyd, our fellow runner Ahmaud Arbery, and too many others, we recognize that as Americans we have an opportunity and responsibility to become a more just society.  We accept the challenge, on behalf of all our club members, to state and to live these values.  In that spirit, the board today unanimously adopted the following statement.

Mike McCord, President, July 11, 2020

 Statement2 small

Safety Protocols for Group Runs/Walks Issued – The Club has issued its Covid-19 Safety Protocols, governing how we will conduct our group runs and walks. The overarching principles are that as long as the Coronavirus remains a dangerous threat, it is essential for individuals to follow the current government guidance, as well commonsense safety protocols for group activity. These protocols are mandatory for participants in Reston Runners runs and walks. Please review them before you resume running with the club. I hope you will find them easy to remember and consistent with your own current practices.

Among other things, these protocols call for:
• not participating if you are feeling sick or ill, or have a fever, or if you have been in contact with someone that has had Covid-19;
• making a careful decision about participating if you are in a high-risk category (age or underlying medical condition);
• maintaining 10-foot distancing while exercising and 6-foot distancing at all other times;
• running and walking in line or in the zig-zag pattern in the RRCA Group Running guide (available through the safety protocols link) unless there is ample room to do so abreast or to pass; and
• being a good neighbor when encountering others.

See the link for more details. Compliance with these protocols should reduce risks to you and other Club members, demonstrate to others that we are being responsible, and hopefully reduce the likelihood that others will contact the authorities about alleged noncompliance with safety guidelines.

Bring your own water and sports drinks; communal water support will not be provided until further notice. There will be no organized post-run/walk breakfasts until further notice.

YMCA Reopens– The YMCA has re-opened now that Northern Virginia has moved into phase 2. See the Reston YMCA  Website for information on activities offered, restrictions and making reservations.

Congratulations to Holly Armstrong

On May 2, Reston Runner Holly Armstrong ran the entire 45-mile length of the Washington & Old Dominion trail to raise funds and awareness for the World Central Kitchen and their work in feeding those in need due to the coronavirus.  Holly was assisted, both in terms of both run support and contributions, by many of her fellow Reston Runners, and raised over $4,000.  Well done, Holly!
