Trail Running Class
Tired of running/walking on the road? Not a “runner” but want to be?
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. NO EXPERIENCE trail running needed and open to ALL levels. As long as you can run/walk a minimum of 3km (walks in between in fine), this class is for you! Are you able to run more then that? The class is still for you. We break up into groups and navigate our way through the woods using maps, 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 “runner” to be part of this group. Stop thinking – just come!
BEGINNERS and LIGHT runners WELCOME and ENCOURAGED!
