It just so happens that about a third of Random Row's founders were NCAA Division I athletes in college (track & field, swimming, football). In fact, many of them competed on the same sports teams while at UVA in the 1990's and 2000's. Two of our founders participated in the Olympic Trials for Track & Field (5,000m, 10,000m, marathon in 2004, 2008, 2012) and one is a former Olympian! There is, as you can imagine, a heavy focus on sporting events at Random Row. Especially running. A lot of us go to ACAC regularly, and several of us are tied very closely to Charlottesville's running community, having competed in charity races put on by Ragged Mountain Running Shop for years, worked with Mark and Cynthia on the formation and development of Ragged Mountain Racing, and we also have close ties to Pacer's Running in Northern Virginia (owned an operated by a former UVA Track & Field athlete). Pacers has been doing fun runs with Port City and Blue Jacket in NOVA/DC for a while now and we think it would be fun to do the same. And, as believers in a balanced lifestyle, we think it makes sense to try and stay fit and try to make it fun.
We do one weekday run and one weekend run [insert times here]
