The RIDC was formed with the recognition that a united front to inspire change was necessary to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in the running industry. Through learning (as well as unlearning), and ongoing efforts, the RIDC and its members are working together to increase equitable employment, leadership, ownership, vendor partnerships, representation and more, with the vision of a running industry free of racial injustice and accessible to all – an industry where black, indigenous, and people of color are not just welcomed and valued, but amplified.
