About VHTRC All Access

Our mission at the VHTRC is to support all people who like to run on trails. For those new to trail running, or maybe just getting back into it, we are creating a summer series to support the growth of trail running skills, called VHTRC All Access. Join us each month, June through September, as we explore the trails throughout our local parks featuring different topics such as gear, trail navigation, and nutrition. Our final run will end in a BBQ to celebrate an amazing summer of trail adventures!! We look forward to running with you! Please check our calendar and Facebook page for updates.

For those of you more seasoned runners, we ask that you consider attending as well to provide a valuable resource and knowledge to our new runner series. We look forward to seeing you all on the trail!!
