WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Our SJTR Intro group is a weekly guided trail run that is designed to build fitness and confidence running on trail.
This is a free, 8-week training program, where our guides will start small (3-4kms) & build the difficulty each week.
WHEN WE SAY 8wks,
WE MEAN 12wks
1. The 'Warmup' (4wks) - Guided
This phase gives runners the chance to 'get their feet wet'. Each week our guides will take you on a 3 to 5km adventure.
2. The 'Build' (4wks) - Individual
This phase is simple. Take what you've learned so far and practice, practice, practice. We want you to put in the miles on your own, so you can comfortably join phase 3: The Work!
3. The 'Work' (4wks) - Guided
Time to up the ante. We go from 3-4km runs, on easier terrain, to 6-8km on harder terrain. Don't go gettin' lazy during the 'Build'!
Our mission is to have you running with the Tue. & Wed. crews by the end of the training program.
All runs will be located in the Greater Saint John Area, but the meeting location will change each week.

Please keep in mind that although we will provide lots of "great" advice, we do not provide professional coaching services.
We are your adventure guides, who are very familiar with the trails in our area. We will create a fun and inspiring place to socialize, while at the same time, you will get stronger and more comfortable on trail.
That said, Trail Running carries a certain level of risk, and it is your responsibility to assess the risks to your own ability. By registering, you understand and accept these risks.
