Covid has changed things a bit, but we are excited to get back to our Sunday Trail Run adventures! 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 are now doing staggered times to keep distance between runners. We will also be providing waivers for all to sign before each run. We will be following all CDC guidelines.
NEW – RSVP is required for each trail run time slot. RSVP links can be found under each trail running event listed on our calendar.
We will have a 12 mile run (7:00am), an 8 mile run (7:30am), and a 3 hour hike/walk option (7:30 am). All runs will be paced by a member of the Run With Us Race Team. All participants must RSVP on our events calendar to reserve their spot.
We will be running 4 rotating trails: El Prieto Trail, Chaney Trail, Farnsworth Park, and Strawberry Peak Loop. Check out our online events calendar to verify the trail running rotation schedule.
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.
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. You can find routes for each trail we do over on our events calendar and remember to RSVP.
