Trail running training group

Women’s trail running group starting in April, 2020!

Running with others is so much more fun!

Join us for weekly group runs local coaches and guides 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.

Last year’s Moab trail half marathon and adventure weekend!

Program includes: 

  • 8 week program with 2-3 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!
  • Special clinics
  • Discounts on race entries, shoes and gear!
  • Invitation to join L2S facebook training and strava groups. This is where we will post updates, share useful articles, maps of each run and will also serve as a community where you can talk, share stories, experiences, tips and meet other women to go on some trail runs with!

What can I expect in the sessions?

  • Weekend long runs will start around 6 miles and will gradually increase in distance (up to 13 miles).  Some runs will be completely casual, just a group of ladies heading out for a run together.
  • Many evening/morning sessions will be structured with intervals, hill repeats and specific objectives to accomplish.  These runs will be shorter, between 3-6 miles.
  • A handful of sessions will include strength training, track workouts, form drills and core work.
  • Several distance options for the weekend long runs and “trailblazers” at most runs to encourage the back of the pack runners and lead the shorter distance options

Pre-requisite: 
You need to be able to run a 10k on the trail without stopping before the start of the program
