Trail Fitness Training Program

Congratulations to the 27 participants for completing the Trail Fitness 2016!  It's time for the 2017 edition:  We'll start Sunday, January 22 @ Lake Merritt for an urban trail to find out your fitness level.  No class Feb 4-5 (LMJS hosted RRCA coaching training). Goal race: Sunday, March 12 @ Howarth Park, Spring Lake in Santa Rosa for a 4 mile or 10 mile race. (Register on your own)

Improve your strength, form, and agility as you take your running to the trails. Runners of all speeds and experience with the ability to run a 5k will benefit the most from the program.  

Working on the ups and downhills; building strength to lift your feet off the ground and giving you confidence to bear the elements in the off season; you'll be prepared for spring running and races. We'll be visiting various trails in the Oakland hills, Briones, Tilden and/or Castle Park Walnut Creek depending on the level of wetness and creeks!   

Running Ability:  Please feel comfortable running at least 3-4 miles before the start of class. We'll run up to 8-9 miles in class.  Those wanting to run the half marathon race are best to add on more mileage after each session or get a longer run in on Saturday!
