We believe that it is important to provide running clubs and teams for the running community. Featuring three different run clubs, ranging from our Wednesday Barrel of Fun Run Club to more aggressive trail running clubs. TeamVRB is comprised of four different teams, Triathlon, Race, Elite Mountain and Elite Road. These teams compete in a variety of different races. Teams and clubs are a great way to unify runners and build community.
