Training group

Running with others is so much more fun!

Join us for weekly group runs lead by professional coaches where we will explore new trails, meet new running buddies and support and encourage each other.  Options available for women looking to train for a summer trail race or just benefit from coached/structured runs.

Program options include: 

–  2 coached group runs/training session options a week at different trails across the front range
–  Meet other women who love trail running to train with!
–  Option to train for and complete a local trail race with the group!

What can I expect in the sessions?

  • Weekend tuns will start short and gradually increase in distance. Some runs will be completely casual, just a group of ladies heading out for a run together.
  • Evening sessions will be structured with intervals, hill repeats and specific objectives to accomplish.  These runs will be shorter, between 3-5 miles.
  • A handful of sessions will include strength training, track workouts, form drills and core work.

Pre-requisite: 
You need to be able to run a 5k without stopping before the start of the program.


This program is ending soon however we just launched a summer membership program that includes 3-4 organized/coached trail runs a week from June-mid-August for beginner- intermediate runners.
