What we're about
March 2023 Update: Daylight savings time started March 12 so we're running in daylight again, hooray! We still encourage participants to wear reflective gear and bring lights for safety.
Weather related cancellations due to thunderstorms can be made up to an hour before the run and will be posted to MeetUp.
Post-run socializing is up to individual members. Over the spring and summer VRC runners frequently gather at Taco Bamba for socializing and refreshment after the Tuesday evening runs. We always meet at Caboose Tavern after the Saturday morning runs.
Kick off your week with the Vienna Run Club (VRC) in Vienna, Virginia (no, not Vienna Austria!) Our regular Tuesday runs meet at Potomac River Run and Walk, 111 Maple Ave West, Vienna VA 22180. Join us there every Tuesday @ 6:30pm for a 3-5 mile run with longer and shorter options. ALL paces and ages are welcome! We also meet the on 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month for a longer run, gathering at the Vienna Depot off Ayr Hill Ave., along the W&OD trail just west of the red caboose in Vienna. The long runs meet at 8am in the cooler months and 7am in the warmer.
The group’s goal is to be an all-inclusive Meetup that promotes a fun way to workout and bring people and community together. Run leaders will go over the route before each run, though paper maps will not be provided. To review the weekly route in advance or load it into your mobile phone, Garmin, Apple watch or other GPS enabled device, please join the VRC email list below. Post-workout, the VRC will head out to the best eats of Vienna for a happy hour to refuel and socialize!
KEY THINGS TO REMEMBER
The weekly events are FREE.
VRC events are for all-comers looking for fun and enjoyment rather than competition. Occasionally, in-line brands like Nike, NB, ON, etc. that PRR carries will sponsor a weekly event where participants can try-out shoes or other products at no cost AND win FREE prizes.
On-site parking is available on Tuesday in the lot adjacent to PR Vienna, with more parking directly across the street behind Mattress Firm. Parking for Saturday Long Runs is in the lot adjacent to the W&OD trail with the entrance off Ayr Hill Ave.
Do not let the relaxed pace fool you. The social experience will be high-energy to keep you moving.
