Welcome TRAIL RUNNERS!

We run on the dirt and in the trees. Why? Trail running is...FUN, less impact on the body than running on pavement, utilizes more muscles groups so you get stronger, balance and agility improves, mentally stimulating, a great way to connect with nature, and you're having so much fun you want to keep running!

We schedule group runs every weekend, night runs, morning runs, weekly interval and hill workouts and meet for races. Although we are a trail running club who trains on trails, we do throw in an occassional road race, too. Most trail runs are on trails surrounding Folsom Lake, Lake Natoma, Auburn, and Cool.  For the trail racing enthusiast, join us for trail racing - see the race links on our Message Board "Races" thread.

We're a crazy group that likes to have fun. You'll meet runners and build relationships with others who share similar running goals and schedules, whether the goal is to improve fitness, race a 5k or ultra distance event; the Folsom Trail Runners has a diverse group of members from beginners to ultra distance runners. Training with us will help improve your form, distance, pace and you'll be more motivated to go beyond your comfort zone and run distances you never dreamed of.  We are your support team.

We welcome all levels of runners, however, it is recommended that you be able to run at least 3 miles prior to joining the group at a minimum "trail" pace of 11-12 minutes per mile or road pace of 10-11 minutes per mile to keep up with the group.

Interested in joining us? Please follow these steps: Click on the "Join Us" link and complete the questionnaire.  Your profile/questionnaire will be screened by the Organizer and you must submit an identifiable profile picture of yourself prior to approval; for the safety of the group, we must be able to see what you look like.  If your request is not approved within one week of your request, contact Diane Cressey.

Please join for the purpose of running with us.  Joining solely for the purpose of promoting your business is prohibited.

Annual membership dues is $5.
