Transition to Trail Clinic

Ready to trade sidewalks for singletrack and switchbacks? The 5-week Transition to Trail clinic offers expert advice on where to look, how to head up and down hills, and more. You’ll enjoy fun group trail runs, discover local hidden-gem trails, and meet a crew of awesome running buddies.

Over the course of five weeks, you'll get the chance to learn about:

  • What gear to bring
  • Running form and techniques
  • Different ways to train
  • Scouting your routes

We recommend you bring:

  • Layers
  • Water
  • Sun protection

This 5-week program is designed for those who are already comfortable completing about 5km on road, but have limited experience on trails. The clinic will focus on developing a host of skills that will let you continue to grow as a trail runner and to transition from road to trail. Each week the group will meet their clinic leader at a trail of increasing technicality, and be provided with training guidelines in between.
