A running club with weekly Group Runs in Aurora, IL., Montgomery, IL. and Oswego, IL.
In June I will be leading a 4 week “Intro to Trail Running Class”. While June is a ways off, I want to give everyone a heads up and some of the basic details so you can plan ahead if you are interested.
This class will primarily be for people who are new to trail running but will be open to everyone. We will run on a different trail each week progressing from easy mown-grass trails to technical trails with rugged terrain. All runs will be done within 30 min of Montgomery but if the class has good attendance, we will do a bonus 5th class somewhere special and make a half-day/day trip out of it.
It will be more of a ‘class’ format, not just a fun run. I’ll talk about technique, etiquette, and safety and we’ll do special drills and stretches that will help you make the most of trail running. We will average 30 min of actual running and 30 min of other stuff in each hour long class.
Pace, slow or fast, will not matter as I will use some techniques to keep the group together while letting everyone get in a good run at their level.
Classes will meet Monday Evenings at 7pm and locations will be posted on Meetup well in advance so you can be ready to come out to each location.
If you have never run on anything rougher then crushed limestone, if you’ve tried trail running but struggled with it, or if you just want to become better at trail running, then you will really enjoy this class!
