Este grupo es principalmente para los corredores de las ultramaratones y de los senderos (pero también otros atletas de resistencia) quienes están buscando la comunidad - y claro, a compañeros de entrenamiento - con otra gente latinoamericana u otra gente con intereses fuertes en la región. - This group is primarily for ultra- and trail runners (but also other endurance athletes) that are searching for training partners and community among other Latin Americans, those of Latin American-descent, or those who have a great interest in the region, its language and culture, or learning more about them.
Depending on the interest, events will vary beyond training (such as hikes, brunches, potlucks, volunteering). However, to start, there will be Sunday long runs of 20-50k within the East Bay Regional Park trail network, concentrating near Berkeley and Oakland. These runs and other events will be in both Spanish and English (how they are mixed is intended to be organic, depending on those attending - there will be no strict rules about this), although Spanish is encouraged, even if you are not fluent. English language learners are welcome.
If there is interest, an organized shorter Saturday long-run, more friendly for beginners, will be considered.
Depending on the variety of endurance athletes who may join this group, and due to the difficulty of organizing training during the week, Slack or other social media may be used to better coordinate sub-groups for training or social events.
