Tripping over roots and rocks? Struggling on hills? Lost your shoe in the mud? Then Learning The Trails might be the class for you.
This course is designed to improve your trail running and as a result help keep you safe. The classes will have just a few minutes of lecture and discussion followed by short group runs. Runs will pause at different obstacles and challenges to discuss the proper way to successfully navigate them. Participants should be able to run a 5K without stopping. A goal for this program will be to have all runners comfortable running at least five miles on trail so they can participate in Medved Madness on May 5th in Mendon Ponds Park.
Classes will be instructed by Dave Farrands. He has run many trail races both locally and out of the area in many distances including ultramarathons. Dave is well known among local trail running groups and is always willing to help other runners on the trail. He is looking forward to helping others discover the fun and challenge of trail running.
