Tri-Cities Road Runners (TCRR) was established in 1980. The primary purpose of TCRR is to promote and encourage running and overall fitness through educational and charitable means. They serve the running community in Petersburg, Hopewell, Colonial Heights, and the surrounding areas such as Prince George County, Dinwiddie County, and Chesterfield County. TCRR conducts about six races annually and provides logistic or technical support to several more. Some of their races are cooperative efforts with organizations such as hospitals wherein health and fitness are emphasized.
