COVID-19 Update: In light of the current pandemic, a desire to assist in flattening the curve, and a deep love for each of you, we have decided to delay all group runs for the rest of March and April. Meanwhile, keep finding the beauty of the trails that surround us, share with us your adventures, and reach out to the trails and people in need.
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 are on Sunday, start at 9 am and will be approximately one hour and typically cover between 3 and 4 miles, depending on pace. We will leave no one behind, and often have walkers/hikers so please come out! Please check the website for the most up to date details.
