The RRCA American Long Distance Running Hall of Fame was established in 1970 by the Road Runners Club of America. The criteria for induction are:

1. Two to Three inductees per year 2. Preference is often given to competitive running performances 3. Inductees need not necessarily be near the end of, or clearly past, their prime competitive years. 4. Inductees should have demonstrated long term excellence (years of quality performance) as opposed to a few brief years of top performances. Exceptions may include, but are not limited to a world-record marathon or an Olympic Championship. 5. Racing preferably should have been done at distances of 5 miles or longer. Shorter distances such as a 5K will be considered, but a person which as only been outstanding at 5K does not deserve to get in on running performance alone.[1]

Nominees are selected each year by a Hall of Fame Committee.

The following people have been honored by induction into the RRCA Hall of Fame:[2]
