      The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), the oldest and largest distance running organization in the US, selected Lynchburg, VA as the 2011 Outstanding Runner Friendly Community. 
     Chartered in 1786 on a hill overlooking the James River Lynchburg was spared most of the destruction that befell other Virginia cities and towns during the Civil War, and has a rich variety of historic and natural resources. 
    In making its choice, the RRCA considered Lynchburg’s infrastructure, civic backing, and local business support for running. as well as their ability to maintain positive relationships between the running community and local government.
     In addition to having popular races and an active run club, Lynchburg has two fantastic park systems: Blackwater Creek Natural Area and Peaks View Park, offering eight miles of paved trails and 15 miles of natural trails. http://www.rrca.org/programs/runner-friendly-community/official/.
