Trail running training club

Running with others is so much more fun!

Our trail running training club is for women training for a trail race as well as anyone interested in skills-based, structured runs with a professional coach. Join us for weekly group runs to explore new trails and find a community of like-minded women.

Our group at the Leadville Heavy Half!
 

Who is this program for?

Women who can run a 10k on trails and are interested in training for distances 10k and beyond! 

There are no pace requirements, and the group will stay together throughout the run. Many runs also have a Trailblazer volunteer who runs at the back to make sure no one is left behind.

Many women in the program train for races, but it’s not required. 

If you’re new to running, check out our Couch to 5k program. If you can run a 5k already, consider our beginner trail program.
