Fall 2018 10k Trail Program


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 10K  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 Bizz Johnson half marathon on October 6th, 2018.  This race takes place in Susanville, CA so plan on getting a hotel or AirBNB asap. We'll start at 3 miles and work our way up to 7 or 8 miles, are you ready?!

Program Kickoff and Fun Run:  Saturday August 11th, 2018 at 7:30am at Fleet Feet Sports.  Meet your coach Jason Orgain, 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 50 people, so register early!!

Your coach is: 

                                    Jason Orgain 


Registration is now open!


Program Details:

Join our program and receive:

  • Twice-weekly coached group runs
  • A daily training plan for the 8 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 for the longer runs with NUUN

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!

Meeting times:  Weekly coached workouts will be on Tuesdays at 6:15 PM and Saturdays at 7:30 AM.  Be prepared for a couple of out town Saturday runs. The first official workout will also be your program kickoff, so come prepared to run!. Meeting locations will be scheduled by your coaches, so wait for a weekly email from them.

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 10K team, you must  have completed a recent 10K race, because we will build to about 8 miles! Trail is very different and a lot more technical than "road running". 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.

*No children and pet are allowed to the group workouts

Goal Races:  We will be targeting the Bizz Johnson Half Marathon trail race on October 6th, 2018 in Susanville CA.  I recommend finding lodging in the area as soon as you register for the race! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Shawna at shawna@fleetfeetchico.com
