Run Club Alexandria VA

Our Run Club features trail runs ranging from 3-13 miles.  All of our runs feature beginner friendly distance options so that new runners can join us.  As part of the class, we teach new runners what kind of sneakers to buy, what gear to wear, how much water they need, and which supplements are best on and after the trail.

Scaling for Various Level Runners

Like all of our classes, we provide scaling for our runs.  So even if the class says were are running seven miles, we can provide you a shorter run.  All weekend classes meet at Sand and Steel Fitness and we carpool to the run location.  We are here to help in terms of running gear, hydration, nutrition, running technique, etc.

A Run Club for CrossFitters

We are not professional runners… some of us our faster, some of us are slower, but we all friends. We run to improve our cardiovascular health and improve our conditioning for CrossFit. Our run club programming is specifically keyed with our CrossFit programming so you don’t get overtrained.

Spartan Races, Ex2 Races, Hyrox and More

We also compete as a team at various local races such as Spartan Races, EX2, Hyrox and more.
