This group is for people who love to trail run but would also appreciate some company on some of those runs! I know I personally feel much more energized on trail runs versus pavement runs, not to mention the scenery is usually much better too!

I took over as organizer of this group in May 2012.  I am new to trail running, and find it a great way to exercise, experience nature, and get away from the rat race for a bit!  I'm looking forward to meeting like-minded folks who are up for some adventure.  I don't know how the group ran prior to signing up as organizer.  Let me know of any new ideas or suggestions for the group.  I hope we can share our knowledge of local trails and explore some new places together.

There are some great trails all over Ventura County, some that are more flat if you want to ease into it, and there are some really challenging trails for those who like to torture yourself by finding the steepest trails to run up! :) You can see which ones are which by looking at some of the past meetups scheduled, which usually include elevation profiles and maps.

I envision the meetup being a meeting point for local trail runners and people adding multiple runs per week at different locations and times - including some night trail runs with headlamps! That's why it's important for new trail runners to share where YOU like to hit the dirt and bring some others along!

See you on the trails - Clay Davidson

































So if you like to trail run, are tired of running through your neighborhood all the time, or have always wanted to try out the trails but were intimidated to go by yourself - come join in on a trail run!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
