Trail Clinic

They say triathletes are made in the off season. One of the best off-season training opportunities is trail running. Trails are great to run for recovery as they force the body to use muscles differently than they are accustomed to in traditional training. You’ll walk, you’ll run, you may even see a deer or two! Enjoy the great out doors while conditioning your body for the coming tri-season!

When: January – March

Days & Times: Saturdays at 8:00am

Location: Varies each week (see weekly updates for information)
