The Trail Blazers program is for adventurous boys and girls in 2nd–5th grades. We encourage youth to use trail running as a fun way to stay fit for life. We do this by making running fun! We clamber over trees and rocks, play games, explore beaches and forests, make friends, build and clean up trails, challenge ourselves and get dirty!

 

The group will meet at a different location each week. 

 

Trained coaches run with small groups of kids to ensure safety, proper trail etiquette and FUN! The focus is on doing one’s personal best, not competing with each other.
