Alexandria, VA—The Road Runners Club of America is sad to announce the death of friend and running coach Andrew C. Palmer, 48, who died suddenly on Saturday, February 2. According to reports, Andy suffered from a heart attack while out on his long run through Moses Cone National Park in his hometown of Blowing Rock, North Carolina. The details of his death are still uncertain.

What is certain is the indelible mark that Andy has left on the sport of long distance running. When news of his death spread, it sent shockwaves through the running community. Once again someone so crucial to the sport was lost so tragically. For the RRCA, we have not only lost a wonderful friend and advocate, but a true visionary.

Andy’s vision and passion for running was clear in the large amount of time that he donated to helping the RRCA. When asked, Andy eagerly assumed the role as chairman of the RRCA coaching committee and served as a member on the RRCA Roads Scholar committee. His drive and enthusiasm on both committees were contagious.

It was the same enthusiasm and verve with which Andy pursued his dream—building a non-profit training facility for endurance athletes. After years of planning, Andy and his wife, Zika, were set to open the doors of their facility, ZAP Fitness, later this year in Blowing Rock, NC. By creating such a facility, he hoped to help post-collegiate athletes develop their skills to their fullest potential.

Helping people understand their potential—that is Andy’s legacy.

     Over 100 Cape Cod Athletic Club members turned out for the annual awards banquet this year at the Old Sea Pines Inn on Saturday, February 2nd.  Fine food and a good time were had by all as the last stragglers headed out the door a little before midnight.  As well as presenting awards for the annual Winter Grand Prix, several additional awards were presented.  On the following morning, several club members eager to burn off the calories from the night before were treated to a chilly, invigorating run around the John Gray Road Race course on a bright, clear, sunny Sunday morning.
