Trail FUNdamentals - Beginners and Basics

Our beginner trail class is back!  Learn basic skills needed to give you confidence when running on our beautiful bay area trails. This class is for people new to trail running and for those just returning to running.  All ages and abilities are welcome.


This class introduces participants to the basics of trail running, including building aerobic fitness and hill-based strength training, while improving agility and running form. Trail safety and etiquette will be emphasized in each class.  We will be visiting various trails in the Oakland Hills with the goal of running comfortably up to 3 miles by the last class meeting.

Also, we provide plenty of shared online documents and resources to keep you engaged during class and after.

Prerequisite: None.  Be comfortable moving on uneven dirt, gravel or grassy surfaces.

Dates: 6 consecutive Sundays starting September 10, 2023 to October 15, 2023.

Time: 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Class size:  15-30 participants

Meeting place: Various locations in the Oakland Hills. Exact locations will be announced by weekly email.

Fee: Flat fee, but contact instructor for fee and attendance concerns/issue. Our club mission is to support a diverse community of runners. Reminder, our club is 100% volunteer-run so fees can go to help other local adult/youth activity programs which follow our own club mission!

Instructors: Edmundo Vito Cruz, Road Runners Club of America RRCA certified run coach and Helpers.

Contact: If you have questions about the class, please contact Edmundo.

Please join us for this fun and inspiring class!
