It's different on dirt! If you are looking to learn how to run, run/hike, or hike on a variety of trails, want to meet new trail running/hiking friends, and prepare for the Nisene Trail races in June 2019, then check out our Rock Runners Trail Program. Over the course of 9 weeks, we will have 9 supported, coached trail runs or hikes increasing in distance and difficulty. Our Coaches and Mentors will help you safely train for trails and the Nisene 5K or Half Marathon, utilizing mostly the Nisene Marks Forest Park trails, including some of our local State Parks in Santa Cruz county. While it is helpful that you have been on trails before, it is not required. Please NOTE: Group C and D will be training by time rather than distance.
