Sunday Trail Run: Farnsworth Park
We welcome runners who are new to trail running or those who just want to run with fellow trail enthusiasts. These trail runs are sponsored by Saucony.
We have two trail running groups along with a hiking group that meet at 7:00am.
One trail running group goes for about 6-8 miles depending on the trail, and the second trial running group goes double digits. The hiking/walking group lasts for about 3 hours.
Today we will be meeting at Farnsworth Park Amphitheater in Altadena.
Here are some key things to remember before you join us for a Sunday Trail Run:
1️⃣ Make sure to bring enough water for the distance you plan to cover. It’s always better to have a little extra than not enough 😰
2️⃣ Trail running shoes help for extra traction and for protection against those accidental foot nubs against rocks, BUT road shoes are ok since this is not a very slippery trail.
3️⃣ Fuel. Remember to bring some sort of fuel with you whether liquid or something like yummy chews from Skratch Labs or Clif Bar. We carry both in-store along with a TON of other options.
4️⃣ Use an app like Strava to get to know the route – join Club Run With Us on Strava where we have all the trails saved on our maps. While our runs are led by members of our RWU Race Team and we’re here to help you learn about trail running, it’s always helpful to have a general idea of the route. BONUS is that you get to start learning about all of the various ways you can tweak or add to your route as you become more comfortable with the trail.
