Monthly Trail Run!

Re-learn how much fun running can be! Great therapy! This fun & easy paced run is an intro to trail running and a guided tour of the James River trails!  The 6-7 mile run takes place at 8AM on the 1st or 2nd Saturday or Sunday of each month.  You should be trained up to run that distance at an 11-minute per mile or better road pace.  Run that pace and this is in your league! This is not  a high-end group, just friendly trail runners wanting to share the experience. We run short segments, regroup, then head to the next regroup point. And yes, we do have sweepers, and they tell me that's where most of the fun really takes place.  Runners bring snacks and beverages to share after the run!  An announcement and details are posted here and on the message board on the last weekend of the month.   Hope to see you out there...

RVA Monthly Trail Run! Sunday, September 7, 8AM!

Summer is near over, but the outdoor fun just keeps coming!  Come out! Bring a friend! Bring a neighbor! Bring your pet! Bring a story to tell! Be part of the Monthly Trail Run (MTR) on Sunday, 09-07-14 @ 8AM, rain or shine! Combine training, fun, friends and trail running in one! The MTR is an easy paced 6-7 mile trail run that was designed for those looking to try something other than road running, and/or wanting a guided tour of the wonderful resource that we have in the James River trail system (Buttermilk, Forest Hill Park, Belle Isle, Pipeline, NorthBank and Texas Beach Trails).

The group size is usually 10-20 (35+ last month!) and will run some configuration of the single-track James River trails system. If you are trained-up to run 6-7 miles at a 10-minute per mile or better road pace, then you'll fit right in! Experienced trail runners will be mixed in with the group, and no one gets left behind! We run short segments, regroup, and move on. This is all about working-out and enjoying the experience. Meredith & John Nelson and Michael George will be there to keep the back of the pack together and having a great time.  Road running shoes are fine for these well-established trails. Bring hand-carry fluid or a hydration pack if you'll want to drink on the fly.

Details: The MTR starts and finishes in the gravel parking lot on Pump House Drive, immediately behind the Boulevard Bridge toll plaza. We will pass at least one porta-potty en-route. Water fountains are back in operation but may not be encountered, so bring fluid to drink on the fly.

After: One of the best parts of the MTR, and trail running in general, takes place after the running has ended! Those coming out usually bring snacks and beverages for themselves and to share. This is THE social gathering of the month!  So don’t miss out!

Questions or concerns? Feel free to reply below, email me at markiscool1@hotmail.com, or call 804-651-5415.

Be well, Mark
