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 8:00am (may change each week – look closely at the post) and will be approximately one hour and typically cover between 3 and 5 miles, depending on pace. We will leave no one behind, and often have walkers/hikers so please come out!
If you are unsure of the parking areas for these runs, please download the #trailsroc app to help you navigate to the parking areas. Please check the website for the most up to date details.
