Trail Training

Getting dirty is just one of the perks!

Join Trail Heads to explore local trails along the foothills and learn how to conquer the terrain. You will experience some amazing scenery while learning new trails that you will visit for years to come.  Our Trail Heads trail training group is coached by some of the best and most passionate trail and ultra-runners in Northern California. Hitting the dirt may be just what you are looking for to reduce injury and enhance your running experience.
