Club Track. Now bigger than ever.

Some runners don't live purely for the distance. To ensure that our shorter distance friends have their own time to shine, Club Track and Field is now its own CIO: an integral part of Virginia Club Running. We had fantastic indoor and outdoor seasons in 2015 and are looking to grow and diversify the team in the 2016 seasons. If you are interested in track and field and you want to join our community of runners, please contact us . Your input and participation will help to develop the Club Track and Field program.

Club community. More than just running.

Virginia Club Cross Country is first and foremost about running, but we also support a very active social community. Charlottesville is near some great places to enjoy nature and we organize events like day hikes, camping trips, river tubing, and meteor shower observations. Back on grounds, we have team parties, group dinners, a relay for life team, pickup volleyball games, and many other activities.
Most of these events are organized through the team email list-serve. Email president Nora Barnes-Horowitz for an invitation .
