Trail Running Summer Camp 2019
Each summer, DC Capital Striders Running Group hosts 5 to 6 various outings typically on Saturday’s at scenic trails within a few hours of Washington DC. These runs, walks and hikes are open to anyone who wishes to join us. Please know that these outings take the runner, walker or hiker into the woods/mountains so it’s very important to always be safe, join with a friend, and carry enough water and/or food, supplies you may require. Occasionally, after the attendees visit a local brewery, winery, or restaurant for post run, hike, food, refreshments. You can see all of these summer camp events on our DCCS; Trail Running “Wolfpack” Facebook page here:
