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.
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!
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.

interaction with each individual teammate, the 2016
team is limited to 50 people.
