Train for and complete a destination trail race with Life’s 2 Short Fitness!!
Join L2S and women trail runners as we train for and travel to beautiful destinations to participate in trail races twice a year.
The first race is Moab Trail 1/2 marathon OR full marathon on November 2nd and 3rd 3rd, 2019. Join us for a weekend of adventure!
Not a runner? L2S also has a group of mountain bikers going out for the Adventure Weekend! We will be organizing several guided rides + shuttles over the weekend too. Details below….
6am: Group carpool leaves the Dinosaur lots
12pm: Arrive in Moab and grab lunch. Check into our hotel.
3pm: Fisher Towers hike to shake out our legs. This is an easy, 4.4 mile loop with scenery that looks like something out of the Raiders of the Lost Ark.
6pm: Pick up our packets and then head to dinner where we will do a pre-race Q & A to talk about race strategy, expectations and nutrition.
Meet early for a group warm-up, pictures and then run! Cheer on other L2S gals. Those who want to go their own pace head off, otherwise we finish as a group!
Mountain Bikers: We will have a 2-3 hour intermediate level ride + suggestions for longer rides in the area if you want to explore more.
Post race: Recover and relax. Enjoy a stretching and foam rolling session, laccross balls and foam rollers provided. Grab lunch on your own and if you have the energy, join a sunset hike + wine on the Delicate Arch trail. A group dinner will be arranged after the hike.
Sleep in, grab some breakfast, coffee and then off for a group mountain bike ride! We will take beginner/ early intermediate trails that have sweeping views of the desert landscape, the Colorado river and iconic rock formations of the area. This is a 3-4 hour ride that includes a shuttle.
We will go easy, take many breaks and lots of pictures! Group lunch and then start heading back to Denver.
