"Women on the Trails" Training Group

Women on the Trails is an 8-week program created specifically for women who are interested in getting into trail running and would like to do so in a group setting. In addition to providing weekly group runs, each run will be held from a different trail head entrance on Austin’s Greenbelt so that new trail runners will complete the program with exposure to a variety of trail routes to run on solo or with friends.

Dates: April 19, 26 | May 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 | June 7
