ARLINGTON, Va. — Since 1996, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) has awarded grants totaling over $360,000 through the Roads Scholar® program. The goal of the program is to assist American post-collegiate runners who show great promise to develop into national and world class road running athletes. The grants ($5000 per athlete) awarded by the RRCA go directly to the athletes to help support their goals of becoming world class distance runners. Deena Kastor (nee Drossin), the 2004 Olympic Marathon bronze medalist, was a 1997 grant recipient.

The RRCA introduces and congratulates the 2011-12 Class of Roads Scholars.
