(Kalamazoo) – Kalamazoo County, including the cities of Portage and Kalamazoo, was one of four communities across the nation selected as a Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA) Runner Friendly Community, an honor that will be recognized for the next five years.  The goal of the program is to shine a national spotlight on communities that stand out as runner friendly and to provide incentives and ideas for communities to work collaboratively towards this goal.  Other communities receiving the designation through the most recent selection process were Chattanooga, TN, Sarasota, FL and South Lake, FL.

According to RRCA’s national press release, “these communities have shown they meet the program’s criteria, which includes community infrastructure, community support and local government support.  Each community has an infrastructure that can foster physical activity in a safe environment, a proven track record that organizations and businesses work together to promote running as a health exercise and sport, and there are positive relationships between the running community and local government.”
