Jump over the river, blast through the woods and learn to crush the trail in this brand new run series.

   This beginner- friendly training program is designed to allow each runner to feel comfortable out on the trails.  The end goal of this program is not to complete a set distance in a specified time, but rather to develop a host of skills that will let you continue to grow as a trail runner.  More than likely each of us has a different fitness level and you are encouraged to complete each training session to the best of your ability.  

***This program assumes you have no major health problems, are in reasonably good shape and are comfortable jogging for 5km.  

Between group sessions we recommend that you continue to run on your own. This may still be intimidating for some so please feel free to join our Trail Crew that meets weekly on Thursdays for social training runs.

If you have a history of health problems we recommend you consult a medical professional before starting the program -- as you should when you begin any new physical activity.  Please come speak with me afterwards if you have any questions or concerns. 

We will tacke a different trail each week.  The maps for each route are below.  This is a great way to train for the May 20th trail race at Whitemud Park. Sign up: HERE
