Ladies, let's get our trail run on! Don't worry about pace and ability, just do it! The only way to know if you can is to do, right?

ESTRA-GEN, a monthly ladies only trail running experience. No dudes!

When: SATURDAY, November 21
Where: Pumphouse Lot
Time: 0800, we leave at 0810
3 and 6 mile options

We will be rediscovering Texas Beach to North Bank which brings us back to our cars. Depending on the weather, we'll chat and have a snack before setting off on the additional 3 miles.

Enjoy the experience and start off your Saturday in the best place possible, the woods along the river!

Just wanted to let you know about this upcoming trail race to help a courageous local youth that suffered a severe spinal cord injury in a recent accident. Awesome woodsy course.

Matt, more people frequent the RDR Facebook page and the RVA Runners group page on Facebook. There's also a RIC Trail & Night Running group, too. We're out there, ya just gotta make friends.

Okay, there are 240 members in this group.  There has to be a pulse out there somewhere...? And I know you didn't sign up for this group just to "pad your resume", meaning that you actually probably do like to run trails, or have done so more than once.  Having said that, I am going to run the North Bank trails on Sunday at 8:00 am.  If you are interested in going, we (I am being optimistic, it may just be I...)  will meet at the "Overlook" in Oregon Hill, which is at the end of Pine Street (though you have to come down Laurel since Pine St. is one way, though there is plenty of free parking right there, so you don't have to walk very far to go run, ha ha) overlooking the river, and go north from there, beginning behind Hollywood Cemetery.   3 miles up, 3 miles back, for about an hour...?

Then if you are really motivated, join me for some yoga at 10:00?  Starbucks on Grove at 11:30?

Is there a Saturday or Sunday weekly trail run?  If so, where do you meet?  I will be running this Sunday, though would prefer to run with a group.

RRRC annually reviews groups listed on our web site.  The email address for the creator of this group no longer works.  Is there someone who can verify if this is an active group? Is there someone or several of you who would like to take over as Administrators of the group?  It is a role I can assign to you within the group.  It allows you to edit content of the group.  

If someone could respond directly to me, I'd appreciate it.

Super fun time  @ Willis River last weekend, wrote a little blog about it. What goes through your mind during an Ultra?

Comment by Tim Clinton on January 1, 2015 at 6:20pm

Hope everyone who can is attending the Willis River 35 & 50K on Jan 10! I can't wait to finally run this year- being a sweeper last year was great fun. The race is well organized and its an opportunity to meet trail runners that know how to go long.

I ran my first 50k Trail race last weekend at the Seashore Nature Trail 50k in VA Beach. It has a great reputation for being ideal for first-time ultra-runners, and I wasn't disappointed! Great one to check out, would definitely recommend it! Here's link to my race report, hope everybody has an awesome holiday!
