The Northern Virginia Running Club, affectionately known as NOVA by its members, has been a fixture in the DC area running community since the early 1970s. Some of NOVA’s current members have been around since the club’s inception, and have their ancient team jerseys to prove it. This loyalty is emblematic of the close-knit NOVA community, and the solid friendships that are formed through the club are often the reason many of the NOVA members keep coming back, year after year. A member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), NOVA welcomes runners of all levels and ages. The club is a diverse group made up of local elite athletes, former collegiate competitors, top Masters runners, long time members, and new runners training for their first race. NOVA serves to fill an important niche in the running community for serious runners who seek to train under the guidance of a professional coach in the company of a friendly, welcoming community of dedicated runners, all of whom also recognize the importance of balancing running with full professional and personal lives.


Why should I join?
Because, as one of our members said: Nothing compares to the pride I feel in being a part of something that has such a positive impact on the community.
