Squamish is a trail runner’s paradise, and trail running is an awesome way to move your body, spend time in nature, build community with others and improve your mental well-being. If you’ve always wanted to try trail running but never knew how to start, join Tantalus Wellspring Society for our four-week Intro to Trail Running course. Each Wednesday during July, we will meet at a different location in Squamish to:
– Learn the basics of trail running technique
– Discuss trail running apparel, footwear and fuelling
– Learn good trail etiquette
– Explore running on new trails together
This course is designed for brand new trail runners, and we will be starting off with 2KM of running, building to 5KM of running by the end of the month. We welcome all speeds and abilities, and no one will be dropped on our group runs! Come explore our beautiful backyard with Tantalus Wellspring in July.
When: Wednesdays in July (July 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th) from 6PM-7PM. We will also have an online orientation session over Zoom on Tuesday July 6th at 6PM so you can drop in and ask any questions about the upcoming clinic.
Where: A different location every week – Valleycliffe, Brackendale, the Estuary and Alice Lake
Cost: $40 donation to Tantalus Wellspring Society for all 4 weeks, or $10 donation for each session (drop-in, cash/e-transfer only).
We are committed to removing as many barriers to participation as possible, so if you have concerns about cost please reach out to us!
