"Get Off the Road" Summer Trail Running Program 2013
We are excited to bring back the summer trail running series due to popular demand! With notoriously humid summers in NC, trail running is an ideal escape from the hot pavement to the the shade of trees. We'll explore a variety of local trails and teach the basics of trail running in this 9-week series

It is a 9 week long program with coached workouts on Tuesdays at 6:30 pm and alternating Saturdays (6/15, 6/29, 7/13, 7/27, and 8/10) at 8 am. Our goal race is the MacNair Farms 5K, currently scheduled for Sunday, August 11th, 2013.

Mentor - Tues 6/4 @ 7pm

This program will introduce runners to local trails - beginning with easier to navigate "Bike and Bridal" trails at a one mile distance, and gradually working into more technical and difficult "Single Track" trails up to a 3.5 mile distance.
This is considered a Beginner Trail Running program, but you must meet the prerequisite of being able to complete 1.5 miles running or using run/walk intervals comfortably on the road. There is no walking pace group option for this program.
This program has a strict 50 participant cap
