September 25 is National Public Lands day, and in conjunction with the Rivanna River Company and Rivanna Roots concert series we're planning a series of events to celebrate the Rivanna Trail. (In addition to this group run, co-sponsored by the Charlottesville Area Trail Runners, we're also leading a full-loop hike, a full-loop bike ride, and a family-friendly short walk. Check the event overview for details of the other options.)

  • Distance: 5 miles.
  • Run time: approximately 1.5 hours. We will keep a steady pace, but this is a no-drop group run.
  • We will start in Azalea Park and run to Fontaine Avenue, with a couple bonus loops at the Forest Department and Sunset along the way.
  • Start: Azalea Park is located on the south side of Charlottesville, off Old Lynchburg Road). We leave promptly at 8:00 AM, before temperatures climb too much.
  • Finish: We'll end at back at Azalea by 9:30. Join us again later in the day, and we'll comp  admission to the Rivanna Roots concert at the Rivanna River Company (on High Street) for the first 20 people who register! Local beer, wine, and food trucks will be on-site, starting at 5:00, with the concert beginning at 6:00.
