Welcome to World Class Running


The Professional Road Running Organization (PRRO) is an alliance of race directors who together organize and promote the PRRO Circuit, a series of premier non-marathon road racing events. The Circuit features highly competitive elite fields at each event as top athletes seek to qualify for the PRRO Super Bonus paid out at the annual PRRO Championship, which rotates among all of the events. The current Circuit features more than $410,000 in prize money overall, with $132,000 available for U.S. athletes.

PRRO Allied Membership

The Allied Member program is currently inactive while PRRO tries to resolve the difficulties imposed by USADA and World Athletics policies, which pass the costs of testing results management onto the backs of events performing drug testing. PRRO feels this is an unacceptable financial exposure on top of events' already paying the costs of drug testing. We feel that USADA and World Athletics should cover those costs. We will provide updated information when it is available.
