Women on the Trails - Introduction Program is a 4 week* session 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.
*An exciting optional night time trail run is included at the end extending the program to 5 weeks.
