About VAVi

Team VAVi Running Club “TVRC” is an organized Full Marathon and Half Marathon Training Club designed for all levels of runners from Beginner (Run/Walkers) to Intermediate to Advanced. Our approach has always been “Middle of the Road” where we have mastered the ability to keep our program both fun, social and laid back but serious enough to guide our runners through a very successful training program.

Our goal is to provide a well-organized training group that runs right, trains well and has fun while doing it!

We spend our time

People asks what makes us tick? It’s a true balance of what makes training so fun!

Training 90%
Racing 75%
Playing 80%

“Out on the roads, there is fitness and discovery and the persons we were destined to be”

We Love Our Runners, And They Love Us.

Over 4,000 runners come through our program in the last 10+ years. Our Secret Sauce isn’t that secret. Let’s See What Some Have To Say

What a great season!! First time I trained all year, and I loved it! Thank you so much for your support and passion for what you do!! It is contagious!! Running has become a part of me now and is so therapeutic for me.

This was my best half marathon in terms of camaraderie. I do not think I would have finished this race without the kindness of Coach Aaron and his friends. Please pass on my gratitude and this email. America’s Finest City has the finest folks, indeed!!!

I just wanted to take the time to thank you and all the other coaches for all your time and efforts the past 12 months. Without the TVRC, I would not have been ready for the AFC half-marathon. I couldn’t have ran a better race!
