Danville recently was named a Runner Friendly Community by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). The city is one of three locations to receive the designation this winter and meets “the program’s criteria, which includes community infrastructure, community support and local government support for running.”

In a news release, the RRCA notes there has been an expansion of local 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons in Danville, and the City has invested in 16 miles of paved riverfront trail for running and completed an off-road, single track that can host a 50K event distance.

Local infrastructure development also includes the recently completed Anglers Ridge Trail System. Anglers Ridge weaves its way throughout the new CyberPark industrial park just southwest of the Danville Regional Airport.

The news release also states one of the driving forces behind Danville’s emergence as a Runner Friendly Community is RRCA member The Brick Running & Tri Store, which offers group runs, clinics for beginners and injury prevention, as well as event management services to help raise funds to feed the homeless and for cancer survivors.

The Runner Friendly Community designation also takes into consideration local media support of the running community by providing race coverage in the city’s newspaper along with topics of interest to runners, such as safety, health and nutrition.
