Running single-track trail can be one of the most amazing experiences, but it can also be a bit intimidating if you aren't familiar with the terrain. That's where we come in! Join Fleet Feet & MIT's Trail Crew and we will help you explore until you are ready to head out on your own. You'll meet new friends and discover a love of trail running along the way!
Benefits of Trail Running
Trail running is a well-rounded workout - It benefits both the body and mind!
Trail running helps build strength in your core and back, and increases flexibility in your upper and lower body. Spending time in nature is a great way to soothe the stress of the day, relaxing the mind and helping you explore running in a serene environment without the distraction of cars, stoplights, or city noises.
One of the most advantageous benefits of incorporating trail running into your training is that it helps lower the risk of injury. The soft surface of the trails we run helps lessen the impact on your body and joints, providing more cushion in comparison to the hard pounding on concrete or pavement of road running. Trail running also allows an athlete to add variety in to their training, and take a mental and physical break from monotonous road miles.
When can I start?
Now! Trail Crew will train all summer and fall for 4 core races, kicking off on Thursday, May 4th. If you have another goal race in mind, our training schedules are designed to accommodate! We offer customized schedules for all distances and races.
How far do I need to be able to run before getting started?
Zero miles! We will get you from wherever you are today to the starting line with our proven program! However, if you know you will prefer walking in the woods to running, check out our Hiking Club here.
When are the workouts?
The group hosts two organized workouts per week:
Saturday mornings at 8:00am
Thursday evenings at 7:00pm
We offer training programs from 10K to 50K, and will support those of your crazy folks training for longer races as well with a training plan (if this is you, you may have to log a few solo miles out there before our after our meetups).
Where are the workouts?
Rocks and Roots Trail at Alum Creek, located at 3993 Hollenback Rd Lewis Center, OH 43035. Changes to workout locations are communicated via email and our Trail Crew Facebook group.
What do I need to get started?
A desire to get moving! Getting properly fit for running shoes will certainly help, but that can always wait until after the first workout.
Okay, I'm listening! How much is membership and what do I get?
There are several options for Trail Crew Membership this summer!
