It's gritty. You will get dirty, and you may get muddy. It's hilly. And, it's AWESOME. Our Trail Training Program returns for another great season! This is a unique training program specifically designed for trail runners; people who don't shy away from a rocky ravine, who don't mind splashing through a creek, and who look forward to spectacular views you only find on trails around the area. We will be sharing new content and taking the team on fun and challenging trails around the North State. This 10 week program will target the Paiute Meadows Trail Run (a 4.5 mile race) on May 12th, 2018. Note: We will be training up to 8 miles with this team!  You will begin with about 3 miles and build to 8 miles! This program will sell out, so sign up early!


Join our program and receive:

  • Twice-weekly coached group runs
  • A daily training plan for the 10 weeks of the program
  • workshops on topics unique to trail running
  • Field trips to North State trails
  • Friendship and camaraderie with fellow runners
  • Aid stations on some of the longer Saturday runs

Our supportive coaching team will provide you with the tools and training to be successful.  The team atmosphere is always positive and you will meet others who love running trail running as much as you do.  Whichever track you choose, get ready to meet some wonderful coaches, amazing mentors, and lots of other trail running fanatics!

Spring training program open house and information event:  Tuesday, March 6th, 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.  Bring a friend!  Please note that this is a very popular program and that space is limited, so register early.

Meeting times:  Weekly coached workouts will be on Tuesdays at 6:15 PM and Saturdays at 7:30 AM (may be switched to 7:00am at coach's decision).  Be prepared for a couple of out town Saturday runs. The first workout will be on Tuesday, March 6th at 6:15 PM (your kickoff meeting is your first run!).

Requirements:  This program is for experienced runners.  Team members must start the program injury free, wear and carry appropriate trail running clothing, shoes, and gear. To join this 8k team, you must have completed a recent 5K race (able to run 3 miles). This ensures the coaches can keep the group together and safe.  We encourage team members to carpool to destination group runs.  All participants must be at least 18 years of age. We will begin at about 3 miles and will build to 8 miles!

Goal Races:  We will be targeting the Paiute Meadows Trail run in Susanville on May 12th, 2018. Click here for more race information.
