Description

The Fit & Able Trail Blazers Running Team (TBT) offers a wide range of training for everyone, from elementary school kids to senior masters athletes.  All ages, skill levels, and abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate.  Younger athletes are strongly encouraged to have their parents stay with the team during practice and racing.  We encourage all our members to take part at whatever level they wish to participate, whether its improving their running abilities or just wanting to walk for fitness.

This is an ideal program for kids looking at running cross country and a great conditioning program to bridge athletes between seasons.

We strongly encourage athletes to participate in races to:

  • Motivate to train and improve
  • Feel like they are a part of the running community
  • Face fear & overcome them
  • Have benchmarks of progress
  • Have a great time using the tools they worked hard to develop
