"Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Lets Party!' " - Robin Williams
Trail Heads Trail-Gate Party!
When: Wednesday, June 8th at 6:00 pm
Where: Auburn Dam Overlook, 855 Pacific Ave, Auburn (workout directions)
Come Prepared: Are you ready for your first workout? Here are a few great things you will need to come prepared to the first workout.
S.M.A.R.T. Goals: "A goal is a dream with a deadline." What would you like to get out of this training? Are you looking to run your first trail race? Do you have a specific time goal? Whatever your goal, it's important to put it in writing and create an action plan. Here is a fantastic worksheet to make sure you are setting S.M.A.R.T. goals.
Trail Safety and Etiquette: Just as with road running, there is a certain etiquette to running on trail. Make sure you know the "rules of the road" with this handout.
Training News: We also want to welcome you to our Trail Heads Training Home. Your one stop shop for all things Training. Be sure to bookmark this page so you stay up to date on the latest news in your training program.
Carpooling: We encourage carpooling to all our trail training locations. We will have a carpool list at all workouts. Add your name and number and check the sheet often if you are interested in carpooling.
Poppy Pass: Many of our training locations will have pay-for parking. One of the best ways to avoid these fees is to purchase a California State Poppy Pass. There will be a few opportunities where Ranger Pat will come to a workout to sell Poppy Passes. You may also purchase these online or at the Park Pass Sales Office located at 1416 9th Street, Room 144, Sacramento, California.
Bootcamp: Looking to get stronger on the trails? Our BootCamp class is the perfect addition to the Trail Heads training program. One hour long body-weight workouts at William Land Park every Tuesday and Thursday will help you conquer those hills. Purchase the punch card to join in before session 3 starts in July!
Facebook Page: Join us on Facebook! We have set up a Trail Heads Training Facebook page exclusively for our trainees. This is a great spot to communicate with fellow trainees in the program. This is not a coaching site and our coaches are not required to participate on the page. If you have training questions, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please read the page rules as well. Here is how to join:
