VHTRC Member & Volunteer Recognition Party

Saturday, August 2, 2014
1 p.m. – ?


The Virginia Happy Trails Running Club holds an annual party for members and for the volunteers at its events over the past year. The party recognizes the vital contribution that volunteers make to the success of the club and its events. There is good conversation, bad jokes, and plenty of food and drink.

Bob Fabia will be grilling a variety of meats and veggie burgers. There will also be plenty of vegetarian and non-vegetarian sides. And did we mention beer?

The party will be held in southern Fairfax county. Directions will be provided when you RSVP.

The party starts at 1 p.m., with an optional morning run beginning at 9 a.m. Many of the guests will come just for the party. The party food and drink is provided by the club, so no need to bring any donations or offerings. Dress is casual — did you expect anything else? See the pictures from earlier parties and you will get the idea.

The party is free for volunteers and VHTRC members, but please RSVP so we know how many cute baby goats to kill. To RSVP, go to the RSVP Page. If you have questions, feel free to e-mail Joe Clapper for his version of the answers — they will be entertaining, and perhaps even enlightening!

The Run: There will be a group run starting at 9 a.m. on the nearby trails at Meadowood and Pohick Bay Regional Park. The run will be informal, 8–20 miles long, with various options in between. We anticipate running for 2–3 hours, allowing enough time to clean up by 1 p.m. for the party. Hoses and solar showers will be available.

Look forward to seeing what many of you look like in something other than running shorts and skirts.
