Off-road running is good for the body and the soul. Trails don’t pound the legs, their uneven surfaces and hills build leg and lung strength, and they provide a close-up view of Mother Nature at her best. Our Rock Runners programs teach participants how to safely enjoy off-road running and introduces them to different local trails.

"If you are looking for a change in your running routine, I highly recommend enrolling in Fleet Feet's Rock Runners program. The trails of St. Louis County are great courses on which to be introduced to the technical aspects of trail running, preparing you for any trail race. Since joining the program last year my endurance, agility, and strength have significantly improved, which has also contributed to my road race performance." - BB
"Fleet Feet's Rock Runners program will help you improve your road race times because trails are more physically demanding. Personally, I was able to improve my half marathon time on the same course by 27 minutes! I know the trail training was a big part of achieving that." - TJ
"Fleet Feet's Rock Runners program introduces you to trails across St. Louis that you may have never discovered on your own. The ability to pick from week to week if you want to do the short or long route is great when your schedule changes. And you are introduced to trails that you can hike or run with your family." - SB
"As a female, I think that for safety reasons it is great to run in the woods with a group of people. And running in the woods really does make you feel like a kid again." - LJ
"Fleet Feet's coaching staff is awesome! Head coach Andy is an incredible runner and offers great insight and tips for trail running - and he is very thorough when mapping out the routes. All of the coaches will help you improve your running while teaching trail etiquette, safety, and they know what to do if someone gets hurt." - DC
