Maryland Woman Will Head RRCA


Byline: Steve Nearman, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Road Runners Club of America, the Alexandria-based nonprofit organization that promotes long distance running in America with more than 600 member clubs and 130,000 individual runners, is set to announce the hiring of Becky Lambros as its new executive director.

Lambros, a familiar face on the Washington running scene, said yesterday that she has not yet signed the letter of agreement but soon would be heading the embattled organization.

Lambros, a resident of Eldersburg in Carroll County, Md., would not elaborate on the circumstances surrounding her hiring but instead deferred to Bee Andrews, an RRCA director at large from Norfolk who headed the search committee. Andrews would not elaborate either but said a news release will go out tomorrow concerning the position.

Lambros is best known for her tireless work as volunteer coordinator of the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler. She said she has worked in some capacity on the race since 1979, six years after the event made its debut in West Potomac Park. She has served on the race board for the past 10 years.

There has been a movement afoot to merge RRCA and AARC, which would be one of Lambros' major challenges. Financial issues also persist.

Lambros comes in with some management experience. After receiving her undergraduate degree in physical education from Youngstown State, she earned her MBA. She went on to posts at the YMCA and Epilepsy Foundation before taking a position eight years ago as manufacturer's rep for several lines of jewelry so she could have the flexibility to raise her son, Adam. …
