Nathaniel- Welcome to the Monthly Trail Run Group! This unique run serves as an intro to trail running, and as a guided tour of RVA's James River trail system. Is it a high-end training group? Nope. Is it for beginners only? Nope. The runs are 6-7 miles in length, and we invite anyone that can run that distance on the road at a 10-minute or better per-mile pace. does that mean there is no room for faster runners? Nope. Faster runners can take off up front, or mix with the slower runners for support and encouragement. The next RVA MTR is set for Saturday, January 2, 5PM. Yes, it'll be an evening run, which will require a personal light source. A formal announcement will go out Christmas weekend. If you haven't yet run trails in the dark, I'd say that you're in for a great experience. Lotsa Fun!
So now that you signed-up with the group, I hope that you come out and give it a try if you haven't already done so.
