HMRRC awards grants of up to $1,000 to qualifying organizations that promote running within the Capital District. A "qualifying organization" is one that benefits "runners in general". In other words, all runners must be able to benefit from the grant (the runners do not have to be HMRRC members). An HMRRC Grant Application can be secured by going to Outreach>Grants. Grants are awarded by an HMRRC committee in two groups in February and July, with applications due by February 1 and July 1.

Every runner dreads an injury that in an instant can have repercussions for months or years. This unfortunately happened to Tom O’Grady, a noted runner in the greater Albany area who has distinguished himself yearly in the Boston Marathon and who is known as a streaker, a person who runs every day. Tom hopes that knowledge of his experience will help other runners deal positively with similar issues.
