DCCS/VHTRC Trail Run - Great Falls, Virginia

EVENT:  Wednesday Evening Trail Run in partnership with Virginia Happy Trails Running Club (VHTRC)

TIME:  Depart shortly after 6 PM

COURSE:  Trail runs leaving from the Great Falls parking lot - visitors center (park is located at corner of Old Dominion Drive and Georgetown Pike) - some flat, some hilly - we will all decide the course in the parking lot.

DISTANCE:  Complete a distance that is good for you - everyone doesn't run the same distance, so we will determine together who is doing what distance and make sure you know the course.  Distances typically vary from 3 miles up to 10 miles pending time of season and who is running that evening.

PACE:  Open to all paces - again not everyone runs at the same pace, so we will try to split up into groups the best we can.

WHAT TO BRING:  Bring hydration if you need, trail running shoes are a plus, comfortable running gear.

DISCLAIMER:  This run is open to all runners, however you should have some experience with trail running.  There may be times where you may be running by yourself and we can't always guarantee you will have a runner near you running with you.   We will certainly make sure you understand the course as best we can provide before you get started.

RUN LEADER:  Rick A. and/or Tom M.


PLEASE RSVP with your approximate distance and pace desired - again OPEN TO all runners.

      Watch out for hail, peeps. Weather channel says severe thunderstorm near Great Falls. I know you all are tough men, but hail hurts.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
