Trail 50k Training Program

We do not currently have a Trail Running Training Program but the page will be updated if one is added.


Program participants must be 18 years of age or older.

To reduce the chance of injury, prior to program start, we strongly recommend you are:

  • Consistently running 4+ days per week, 20+ miles per week
  • Comfortable running 12-13 mile long runs
  • Have the blessing of your physician if you have some sort of medical issue that may affect your participation (heart issues, orthopedic concerns, etc.)

Pace varies by individual. We have a wide range of paces represented in most of our training programs. The more people in the program, the more paces we’ll have represented, so spread the word.
