What to expect:
Meeting twice a week, Thursday’s (@ 6:30 PM) will be a shorter run, approximately 1-1.5 hours. Sunday’s (meeting @ 8:00 AM) will be our days to get in some distance and elevation. Our local mountains offer moderate to challenging terrains. Be prepared for elevation gains upwards of 1,000 meters and to be on the trails for up to 3-4 hours.
There will be 3-4 different groups, ranging from beginner to advanced with different paces offered within each level. All groups will be running the same routes, starting at 10km and building up to 15km. As stated in the requirements, we ask that you are capable of running 1 hour straight on the road or 1.5 hours on the trails with breaks.
Safety is our number one priority. While keeping group numbers low, we will be practicing safe distancing throughout the clinic. From when we meet before our runs, trekking through the trails, and sending everyone home safely.
