Spring Trail Half Marathon Program


It's gritty. You will get dirty, and you may get muddy. It's hilly.  And, it's AWESOME.  Our Trail Training Program returns for another great season. This is a unique training program specifically designed for trail runners; people who don't shy away from a rocky ravine, who don't mind splashing through a creek, and who look forward to spectacular views you only find on trails around the area.  We will be sharing new content and taking the team on fun and challenging trails around the North State.  This 10 week program will target your choice of the Paiute Meadows Half Marathon trail race, Muir Woods trail race or the Dirty Secret trail race all on May 11th, 2019. You will begin at about 7 mile and will be building to 14 miles! 


Registration is now open!
