Trails & Ales

Join us on Oct. 17, 2020!

Calling all beer drinkers with a trail running problem! We're excited to announce our fifth annual Trails & Ales trail run and beer festival! Runners will have two distance options to choose from before finishing at the beer festival, where local craft brews, music, and good friends await!


Sign up for the Dog Wave, for either distance, and bring your favorite canine along for some fun on the trails! There’s no better way to spend a Saturday evening than with man’s best friend!

Changing leaves, crisp breezes, views of the river…nothing says fall like trail running in RVA! Add some local craft beer in the mix and you’ve got Trails & Ales! Come Celebrate the start of the season on Saturday, October 17 at 10th and Semmes. In addition to foliage filled running scenery (and beer drinking), we’ll have food trucks, and music for runners and friends.
