Created by trail runners to support those aspiring to be new or better trail runners! Trailhead Running provides comprehensive trail running programs in a safe group format with a focus on exploration, learning, and fun.
Trailhead Running offers “Women on the Trails”—Austin’s comprehensive women-specific trail running program designed to get women on the trails in a safe, fun, group setting. Designed by experienced, certified, female coaches, there are two programs: Women on the Trails-Introduction focuses on basic trail running skills, navigation on the main trails of Austin greenbelt, and trail gear. Women on the Trails-Intermediate focuses on more advanced trail running skills, techniques, and navigation on lesser known trails.
Each eight-week program includes weekly coached runs, informative Trail Talk sessions, product demos, and an optional night trail run. Each run starts from a different trailhead entrance on Austin’s greenbelt so that runners complete the programs with exposure to a variety of trails in a group, “no-drop” setting. Safety, learning, and fun are the main goals and the program’s tagline supports this mission: “You’re not lost. You’re with us!”
In addition to the current Women on the Trails programs, Trailhead Running will offer two co-ed programs including an ongoing weekly trail run and a four week “Directionally Challenged” program focusing on trail navigation.
You’re not lost, you’re with us!
