Brambleton, VA August 2012 – Soave Enterprises’ master-planned community was recently selected as a 2012 Runner Friendly Community by the Road Runner’s Club of America. The club is the oldest and largest distance running organization in the United States and selects only a handful of new communities for the title each year.
“We are thrilled to receive this honorary title,” states Brambleton’s Director of Marketing, Kim Adams. “Our staff and residents are proud of the beautiful community trails and we are so grateful to consistently receive such outstanding support from the community for local running events.”
The Soave community known as Brambleton hosts thousands of runners at annual 5K/10K running events including the Ribbon Run, Journey for the Cure, and Ringing in Hope. In addition to these races, the first annual Brambleton Kids Triathlon will be held in September of this year. Brambleton’s beautiful streetscapes and hundreds of miles of trails make it an ideal location for community running events.
All year round, on any given day, runners can be seen throughout the community enjoying a scenic run in the Soave community. Soave developers purposefully created hundreds of miles of trails along parks and common areas, luscious landscape and waterfalls which now make running in Brambleton enjoyable for residents and for those from surrounding communities.
While each race brings in close to 2,000 individuals to Brambleton, there are also several running groups, clubs and boot camps that are active throughout the year. A very connected community, running and active groups utilize social media to communicate daily and to organize training runs. Groups have formed that meet as early as 4:30 a.m. on weekdays and 9:00 p.m. at night. As the community grows, the Association anticipates that the addition of more trail systems and scenic streets will attract even more running- based programs to our community.
All the communities that received the Runner Friendly Community designation have shown that they meet the program’s criteria, which includes community infrastructure, community support, and local government support for running. Each community has an infrastructure that can foster physical activity in a safe environment; a proven track record that organizations and businesses work together to promote running as a healthy exercise and sport; and there are positive relationships between the running community and local government.
