Trail Learning Crew (TLC)

17799273_10213179650832383_5094556575221721981_nWHAT: Are you new to trails?  New to this area?  New to running?  Do you get nervous about the hills and roots, or feel like you might get lost?  Do you wonder what the heck is an orange blaze and where on earth is Devil’s Bathtub? This group is a great place to start your journey, or learn more about parks and trails you’ve never been to.  This area offers so many opportunities to our community, we want to help you get comfortable exploring.

All paces are welcome.  As much as possible we will plan routes that allow for a variety of paces so no one is left behind or lost.  This group is perfect for newer runners, people coming back from an injury or time off, and those looking just to get outside for an hour with a low-key and relaxed group!

We will rotate this run to different days/times to be able to offer opportunities to meet a variety of schedules.  All runs will be approximately one hour. Please check the website for the most up to date details.


 APRIL, time to check out Lehigh Valley Trail.  These will be mostly flat out and backs; all paces welcome.

    I started road running in April 2016 in an effort to keep off the 38 pounds I took off dieting…. ran my first 5K in July and a couple more since. I have gotten up to 4 miles on the roads. I live in Webster and ran the Whiting Road trail a couple of weeks ago and after I got over how hard it was I actually liked it. I am wondering if I would be a good candidate for one of your SAS runs? I have never run 5 miles, and my time on the trail was average pace of 13.07 ?!?!?

      Oh, please come. 13 minute miles is plenty for these runs. We’d love to have you
