2016 Winter/Spring Program

Sacfit Ultra Runners is pleased to announce the opening of our newest program, the 2016 Summer/Fall Trails Program. Because of the popularity of this program, space is limited to Sacfit members who are registered for the 2016 Summer/Fall Half and Full Marathon Training Program. 

Should you have a friend who is interested in joining the Ultra Marathon or Trail Trekkers Team, please advise him or her to register with the Saturday program first. If there is a conflict in joining the Saturday team, we are certainly open to moving the registration to the Trails Program, but Sacfit members have first priority and space is limited.

Orientation is June 11, 2016, at 11 a.m. 

Our first workout is June 18, 2016 at 7 a.m.


Our initial meeting place for orientation and in-person registration is at:

The Sacfit Summer/Fall Trail Program is a multi-dimensional training program for runners and hikers interested in getting out on our regional trails for any number of goals, including preparation for various trail races during the Summer and Fall months. 

Over the course of our 2016 Summer/Fall season, we will venture out into the Sacramento Valley foothills and Sierra-Nevada mountains and systematically cover, in weekly increments, nearly the entire Western States race route. This will afford terrain and distances appropriate for beginners as well as advanced runners, and provide equally opportunities to take in incredible vistas and beautiful wilderness!

Ultra Marathon Program.  This program is designed for intermediate and advanced trail runners looking to enhance or maintain a high level of trail fitness.  This program includes challenging longer distances and terrain to complement preparation for later Summer and Fall ultra-marathons, including the Rio Del Lago 100.  Because our program is geared toward strong coaching interaction with each individual teammate, the 2016 team is limited to 50 people.

Trail Trekkers. This is an introductory and mid-level trail running and hiking (walking) program for beginners and novices looking to in jump in or continue his or her trail experience, but are not interested in long distances or ultra marathon races. For the reasons stated above, the Trail Trekker team is limited to 40 people.
