2015 NOVA Running Club Top Performances

By | January 13, 2016

With over 500 races run collectively by our members, a slew of excellent performances including three team race championships and several more top-five finishes, dozens of PRs earned by our members, and thousands of miles logged, 2015 was indeed a banner year for NOVA Running Club. Our group is vast and diverse. Our members live in areas stretching east to west from DC to Loudoun County, and north and south from Silver Spring to Quantico. We have moms, dads, recent college grads, grandparents, kids, and siblings and some wonderful new additions to the team all out there representing NOVA. We look forward to an even greater 2016, as we continue to run fast, and grow as a club.
