Spring Fling 600 Trail Race
The CT Trailmixers welcome folks who are new to trail running! This is a great opportunity to give it a try. They make it fun, with a well-marked course that offers a great variety of terrain and scenery. And you’ll get plenty of cheers and high-fives throughout the day — along with what some past participants have said is the best aid station spread they’ve ever seen.
Their idea is simple. Run as many loops as you’d like of a roughly three-mile trail course as long as you're done within 600 minutes (10 hours). You’re not required to run an ultra distance — at least 27 miles (or nine loops) — although many people will. Whether you want to try your first three-mile trail race, or go for 50 or more miles, this event is for you.
Beginner Runner Training Plans
Are you looking to become a runner for the first time? Coming back to running after a hiatus? Our friends at None to Run have created a gradual training plan for beginner runners!
In 3 workouts of 30 minutes or less per week, None to Run will take you from ground zero to running comfortably for 25 minutes straight.
None to Run is different from most beginner plans:
- Focuses on running time. NOT distance or pace.
- Includes simple strength and mobility workouts. No equipment required.
- Progresses slowly to decrease the chances of getting injured.
If you can't currently run for more than 5-minutes straight without stopping to catch your breath, you're in the right place.
