Trail Run Sundays!

JOIN US EVERY WEEK FOR A LOCAL TRAIL ADVENTURE!
Get off road with us Sunday Mornings @ 8:00am!

Tired of running the same roads day after day? Spend a whole year inside and need to reconnect with people and nature?

Spring is here and that means it’s prime trail running season. After a not-so-short pandemic induced hiatus, we are stoked to announce the return of Trail Run Sundays!  So give your legs a break from the concrete and join us for some off-road miles, Sundays @ 8:00am!

All paces are welcome and you just might find a new favorite running locale. A Strava map and parking location will be provided for each upcoming run. (Make sure to sign up for updates in the “Register” section to the right!) Many of the trails can be run out-and-back, so you can modify distances to meet your needs.

We will meet in the parking lot, break into pace/distance groups, and go for a run! All paces are welcome!

Not all trails will have access to potable water, so plan ahead for your hydration and fueling needs. Although many of these trails can be run in road shoes, we do recommend trail shoes for the best experience (especially if things get a little wet and muddy).

The Fine Print

We offer these events as an opportunity to get the running community together for some fresh air, friendship, and to encourage your training for upcoming races. All ages, paces, and abilities are welcome. All participants are running at their own risk. Please ensure you bring adequate hydration and nutrition. Please be aware of the risks inherent in trail running including, but not limited to: roots, rocks, uneven ground, natural and man-made obstacles, falling down, and injury (AKA trail love). Be safe, have fun!
