What we’re about

Welcome to "Get Out Today RVA"

“Two roads diverged in the forest, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” - Robert Frost

Take the less traveled road, and discover how Get Out Today RVA is helping you make a difference in your day.

Get Out Today RVA (gotRVA) was created as a FREE avenue to help you "GET UP, GET OUT, and GET ACTIVE". It doesn’t matter if you are married or single, young or old, fit or out of shape, you are welcome here.

It takes a lot to run a group, such as good organizers, money, and even some dreaded rules. Since gotRVA's inception, we organizers have created rules and requirements for members and organizers that have helped us create the quality group that gotRVA is known for. For ALL the rules, requirements, and any questions you may have about gotRVA, click this link to be taken to our website.

Dealing with anxiety, depression, and/or being an introvert? One of the best ways to deal with it is to GET UP off the couch, GET OUT of the house, and GET ACTIVE with Get Out Today RVA. We will do our best to try and make you feel welcome and included.

Our mission is to provide diverse and enjoyable outdoor (and sometimes indoor) activities for the opportunity to socialize and make friends. Our outdoor recreational events include (but are not limited to) hiking, biking, camping, backpacking, kayaking, volleyball, pickleball, kickball, bocce ball, badminton, disc golf, outdoor festivals, concerts, and cookouts. Our indoor social events include (but are not limited to) movie nights, out-to-eat dinners, game nights, and more.

Hopefully, our calendar will have enough random events, throughout the year, ranging from easy to strenuous. But we can’t do it without your ideas. ALL members are encouraged to suggest events for the group as long as they are willing to help host.

There are only three simple requirements to become and remain a member of Get Out Today RVA. For a full explanation, please click here. Member Requirements
