Trail Running for Beginners with Susie Gettes
June 11 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
Meet at Courtesy Stables Trailhead
Trail running brings the best of both worlds together; being immersed in nature while getting that “runners high.” This run/hike will be both informative and interactive; so be prepared to do a bit of running. We will talk about equipment (trail running shoes, hydration packs, etc.) safety, trail etiquette and care and trail running skills. We will do a short run- approximately one mile to practice some trail running. It is recommended that you have some running experience and be ready to do some running. Please wear running shoes (does not need to be trail running shoes).
Distance: 1.5 miles
Level: Difficult (some rocky descents and ascents)
Registration is required for all hikes so that participants can be informed of weather or other emergency cancellations. We ask all event attendees to bring a mask and mask up if a distance of six feet cannot be maintained during the activity. If you or anyone in your household are exhibiting COVID-19 systems, please stay home. More information is at fow.org/covid-19.
Unless otherwise specified, Trail Ambassador Walks may be on rocky, rugged trails that may be wet and slippery. Wear sturdy shoes or boots with socks. Walks are cancelled in heavy rain. Service animals are always welcome. For more information contact Amelia Marren at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.fow.org for updates.
