Trail 10K and Half Marathon Training
The trails are calling, and Fleet Feet Folsom Roseville has a Trail Training Program to help you get out there! This program has everything - experienced coaches, a goal-based training schedule, and weekly runs that will introduce you to many different local trailheads in a safe group setting. We will share information on the important components of trail running, fueling, and hydration for the demands of the trail…it’s different than on the road!
This program is meant for anyone from the beginning runner to the experienced runner who may just want to escape the pounding of the pavement and focus on softer terrain and beautiful scenery.
The training will prepare you for the Knickerbocker Canyon 10K and Half Marathon race on Saturday, March 23.
Kick-Off Informational Meeting
Not sure if Trail Training is for you? All are welcome to meet the coaches on Thursday, January 11th for our introduction to Trail Training at 6 pm at Fleet Feet Folsom.
- January 11th - March 21st
- Thursdays 6pm in Granite Bay
- Sundays 7:30am at various locations in the Auburn and Folsom area
Parking at our Sunday run locations are at State Parks and are paid parking areas. You can purchase a day pass or purchase a Poppy Pass, which we highly recommend for the convenience and for your future trail exploration. Finding a friend to carpool with is more fun and economical!
We will prepare you for the Knickerbocker Canyon 10K and Half Marathon on Saturday, March 23rd. The Knickerbocker Canyon race also offers a 5K and 35K for those wanting to participate in that option.
The training is designed to increase week to week so you build slowly, steadily, and consistently towards your goals. The Thursday workouts consist of intensity such as intervals, hills, and tempo to improve your fitness. The Saturday workouts are endurance building towards your goal race distance of 6.2 or 13.1 miles. Your training schedule will include workouts for you to do on your own throughout the week which will help you see more progress. If you can’t make a workout, you will have the schedule to continue to follow the plan.
Coaches and special guests will educate you in person and in Final Surge on topics such as trail safety, mobility, nutrition/hydration, how to prepare for race day, injury prevention, and more. They are also a resource and support for you along the way.
Group Training Atmosphere
Enjoy the safety, accountability, information, and motivation that come from a coached group workout environment. We also have a private Social Wall in Final Surge for you to share, communicate, and get motivation from your fellow training members.
