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.

Meetup Location: For all future runs / hikes, the meetup location will be at the main parking lot. The parking lot is located at 39°06’55.3″N 77°50’51.0″W. The walk from the main parking lot to the trailhead isn’t very far. There are about 7 spots in the aux parking lot. However, if memory serves there is very little cell signal there, so please don’t park there if you don’t have signal. Please message the discord server if you park at the aux parking so we know not to wait for you.

Meetup Time: 9:00AM at the Main Parking Lot.  7:30AM at the gym. Raven Rocks is about 60 minutes from the gym.

Run / Hike: Some of the trail is runnable, but most of it is hiking only. It’s very rocky, so choose appropriate footwear.

After the Hike / Run Meetup: 12:30PM-2:30PM Beer Chase Brewery

The Trails: Download pics and gpx files or View on Komoot. Raven Rock Trail is very easy to navigate. The trail itself goes on for hundreds of miles. For this run, it’s out 1.5hrs and back 1.5hrs. More experienced athletes will simply go further in that time.

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.  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 are faster, some of us are slower, but we are 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.
