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. 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.
