AFC Parking Lot
Come run off your hangover from Friday night!
This will be the first of a series of trail runs exploring the Rivana Trail that circles Charlottesville. Each following trip will try to run on a different section of the trail so that we can construct a feel for a larger part of this fantastic civic project. The first run will start at the AFC, go down Alderman, turn onto Fontaine then meet up with the Trail behind O-hill. We will come off the trail at the UVA visitors center and Take Ivy back to Alderman and end where we started. This is moderatly long run (about 4.5 miles), so come well hydrated and ready. The weather should be warm, so dress according to what the weather is like when you are getting ready to leave.
A note on pace: we will not be running competitive olympic times, but make sure you feel comfortable running at least 5 miles at a decent pace before signing up for this trip (8 minute mile?). We will not leave anyone behind, but you want to be able to keep you head up, looking at the pretty animals, rather than heaving for breath as you look at your muddy and untied shoes.
