  • Tuesday and Thursday Mornings DIY Meet-Up Runs/Walks

There has been a lot of discussion to understand and properly document the Tuesday and Thursday morning runs/walks.  This is an energetic group who regularly meet at the McDonald’s parking lot off Wiehle Ave near Sunset Hills. Distance includes 3, 4, and 5 mile run or walk and meet up is at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., or 8 a.m. Most join at 8 a.m. sharp. It doesn't matter what time you join, or what pace you run—everyone enjoys the company, and of course the group welcomes everyone. After each run/walk, many gather for breakfast and good conversation.


Reston Runners is based in Reston, Virginia and is a proud member of the Road Runners Club of America. We are one of the largest running clubs in Northern Virginia with a diverse range of athletic talent. Many new club members are training for their first 5K or 10K. Others are experienced runners who have run competitively and have completed dozens of marathons and ultramarathons. We are passionate about running (and walking) and strive to be fun and inclusive. As our name "Reston Runners" implies--we are a running club. However, we also have a very active group who prefer to walk. Our weekend events include both a run and a walk course.

Come join us for a group run on Saturday or Sunday. Become an active member to enjoy the many benefits of our community, friendship, social events, fitness tips, and opportunities to volunteer and give back.
