Rock Runners Trail Running Group 

Interested in adding another element to your running? Get off the pavement and head out today to explore the beauty of trail running! Come explore and enjoy a little tranquility away from the hustle of the city!

Off-road running is good for the body and the soul. Trails don’t pound the legs, the uneven surfaces and hills build leg and lung strength, and they provide a close-up view of Mother Nature at her best. Our 12 week "Rock Runners" program teaches participants how to safely enjoy off-road running and introduces them to different local trails. Each of our coach and mentor supported runs offer workouts for participants of various abilities. Runners should enter the program capable of running at least 4 miles or more on the roads at a pace of 12:00/mile or faster.
