Fall Trail Running 2018

Tired of running/walking on the road? Want to learn and explore some amazing trails in our area?

Join us on an adventure in the woods to sweat out the stress of everyday life and be surrounded by nature, fresh air and great company!  If you have never tried trail running or are looking for others to run the trails with, this is the class for you. 

As long as you can run/walk a minimum of 3km (walks in between is fine) on the road, this is a perfect fit.  Are you able to run more then that? The class is still for you. Worried about your speed? Not to worry – all speeds/levels welcome. We break up into three groups and navigate our way through the woods using each other and of course shear determination. Quite often, we walk the hills as it gives you an entirely different workout on your legs. Don’t fret – we will show you! You do not need to be a speed “runner” to be part of this group. Stop thinking – just come! Our goal is to enjoy – not to accomplish.

Your level and your energy you have on that given day dictate how much you want to push with the key goal of learning to ENJOY running not feel torture.BEGINNERS to the trails and LIGHT runners WELCOME and ENCOURAGED!
