Fall Trail Half Marathon Program

Fall Trail Half Marathon Program

Fall Trail Half Marathon Program-

It's gritty. You will get dirty.. It's hilly.  You'll get in those "bonus miles". And, it's AWESOME.  We are offering one standard track for this  half marathon trail program group.  This is a unique training program specifically designed for trail runners; people who don't shy away from getting their running shoes dirty, enjoy the challenge of running the hills, who hanker for a glimpse of a coyote or an eagle, and who look forward to spectacular views you only find on trails around the area.  We will be taking the team on fun and challenging trails around the North State.  This 9 week program will target the Diablo Summit Stomp in Walnut Creek, Ca. (https://brazenracing.com/summitstomp/) We'll start at 6 miles and work our way up to 14 miles, are you ready?!

*Lodging and race entries are not included in the program. 

Program Kickoff and Fun Run:  Saturday August 31st at 7:30am at Fleet Feet Sports.  Meet coach Brett Garrity and his mentors, get information about the program, and get geared up with the latest trail running gear to start your training. We will be going on your first workout run, so come prepared to run.  Bring a friend!  Please note that this is a very popular program and that space is limited to 50 people, so register early!!

  • Twice-weekly coached group runs
  • A daily training plan for the 9 weeks of the program
  • workshops on topics unique to trail running
