Sundays In The Park series
We meet on Sundays at 8 a.m. for training runs on some of DC's best trails, including Rock Creek Park and the surrounding area. We typically meet at either Peirce Mill in Rock Creek Park, or Roosevelt Island, depending on the route. Details of the weekly schedule can be found here: We hope you can join us for a run! All paces and levels of trail experience are welcome for these runs, which range in distance from 6 to 9 miles.

What we're about

The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club is composed of people who like to run on dirt trails. Though based in northern Virginia, most club members live within the metropolitan DC area, with several others scattered in many other states. The club members are of varying running abilities and ages. Many run ultramarathons, but some don't run at all. The VHTRC holds regular Sunday runs in and around the Rock Creek Park trails in Washington, DC, as well as at Great Falls National Park in Virginia, and also holds runs of varying distances elsewhere in DC, Maryland and Virginia. Details on regularly scheduled training runs will be posted here, as well as on the VHTRC site: We hope to see you at a run soon ... happy trails!
