WHAT: 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. 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 always make sure no one is left behind or lost.
All runs will be approximately one hour and typically cover between 3 and 5 miles. Please check the website for the most up to date details.
*SUMMER runs will be on Sunday at 8 am unless otherwise noted below; watch schedule here for locations. Please arrive a few minutes early to sign the waiver and be ready to start at 8 am.
**Summer weekends will vary due to races and other commitments. While we may not have a scheduled run every week, we encourage you to get out there and explore using our #TrailsRoc app and tell us what cool trails you find!
