Team Wolverine Athletics Trail Clinics start January 18

Trail Series with Team Wolverine Athletics

Get ready and comfortable on the trails!

Team Wolverine AthleticsHave you been wondering what all the hype about trail running is? Have you been thinking of hitting the trails but not quite sure where to start? Then sign up for the trail clinic!

Trail running is all about having fun in the great outdoors; finding new trails; getting a good trail tan (getting muddy in other words) and socializing with other like minded people while you get ready for your first or next trail race.

Mike provides a 10 week trail clinic in partnership with PaceSetter Athletic. The clinics include practical and theory elements, safety tips, a local trail map and a 10% discount at PaceSetter Athletic. There will be two sessions per week with a short mid-week run and a longer weekend run, so over the 10 weeks, you will get 20 runs, a theory and safety session leaving you ready to take the plunge and take on your first trail race.

​The trail clinic is set at the reasonable rate of $60 per 10 week trail clinic block. The first clinic starts January 18th!
