EVENT: Wednesday Evening Trail Run in partnership with DC Capital Striders (DCCS)

TIME: Depart shortly after 6 PM

COURSE: Trail runs leaving from Great Falls Park Visitor’s Center parking lot - we run on Trails along the Potomac Hertitage trails, in Great Falls Park, Difficult Run, Riverbend Park and the CCT Trail.

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: Trail shoes and Hydration **It gets very hot and humid during the late spring and during the summer months. Make sure to be properly hydrated!**


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. Remember, it's Trail running! We will certainly make sure you understand the course as best we can provide before you get started.

RUN LEADER: Tom M. and/or Rick A.
