Salem, VirginiaSalem, VA Map

This group run is here to hold space for those who are wanting to get connected with their community while meeting goals on the trail. The focus is primarily trail running for all levels, but feel free to show up and hike/walk!

Our goal is to center the runs on trails in the local area to get familiar with what our lovely home has to offer and enjoy being outside.

The run locations will be posted at least a week in advance.
