Fall Trail Half Marathon Program - 2016

Fall Trail Half Marathon Program- 2016

It's gritty. You will get dirty.. It's hilly.  You'll get in those "bonus miles". And, it's AWESOME.  We are offering one standard track for this  half marathon trail program group.  This is a unique training program specifically designed for trail runners; people who don't shy away from getting their running shoes dirty, enjoy the challenge of running the hills, who hanker for a glimpse of a coyote or an eagle, and who look forward to spectacular views you only find on trails around the area.  We will be taking the team on fun and challenging trails around the North State.  This 10 week program will target the Mount Diablo Summit Stomp on Saturday, November 5th, 2016.  This race takes place in Walnut Creek, California so plan on getting a hotel or AirBNB asap. We'll start at 6 miles and work our way up to 14 miles, are you ready?!

Program Kickoff and Fun Run:  Tuesday, August 30th at 6:15PM at Fleet Feet Sports.  Meet the coaches, get information about the program, and get geared up with the latest trail running gear to start your training. We will be going on your first workout run, so come prepared to run.  Bring a friend!  Please note that this is a very popular program and that space is limited to 45 people, so register early!!

Your coaches are: 

                    Terry Koslofsky                                             And                             Ramon Ferguson


Registration is now open!
