We're experienced trail runners, having competed in distances from 10K trail races to 50+ mile ultramarathons, but we didn't start out that way! We started humbly, struggling through those first trail miles. We remember being daunted by hills and (seemingly) insurmountable distances. We'll help guide you toward your goals, whatever they may be. For some it's competing in that first trail race. Others are looking to push their own limits to see how far and/or fast they can go. Still others are simply seeking safe places to run and good company to run with. We're here to help motivate you, educate you, and (hopefully) inspire you to do things you never thought possible.
