Mission Statement
The mission of the non-profit Charlottesville Area Trail Runners Club (CATs) is to promote the love of trails and trail running. We strive to welcome runners of all types into the world of trail running, to sponsor events that promote trail running, including trail races and social events, and to provide stewardship in developing and maintaining a high quality trail network in and around Charlottesville. This stewardship extends to helping preserve the areas through which trails run, including working to prevent and repair damage created by the use of the trails. Funds raised by the CATs are be used to further its mission.

What we do
We are a group of trail runners based in and around Charlottesville, Virginia. We train together, support each other in races, and have fun both on and off the trail.

We usually meet up for group runs every Tuesday and weekend and vary our training locations, particularly when preparing for a race. A couple of our favorite training locations include various spots on and near the Appalachian Trail in the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounding state, county or national parks.

If you are interested in trail running — either as a veteran or newbie — consider joining us for a run. Folks of all abilities and endurance levels are welcome!
