Timber & Tor – Running Groups (Beginner Ladies/Regular Crew)
January 16 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Saturday, repeating until January 30, 2021
Timber & Tor is Capra’s run group, designed to create a local community of like-minded and passionate trail runners. We offer four group runs per week, starting and finishing at the shop with the occasional destination change to keep things interesting. Free and open to everyone.
The Regular Crew
8:00 am: Saturday morning is our day to catch up with friends, both new and old while getting in a couple hours on the trails. We’ll always have someone coming back to the shop for 10 am, and will often have the option to carry on for a slightly longer run; great for those who need to get their long training runs in. We will re-group at all the trail intersections to keep the group together and try to add in a pre-run warm up before we depart. The route will change slightly week to week, with the odd destination change (Chief, Sea to Summit, etc.) to keep things fun and interesting. This is a social run that’s open to everyone (well-behaved dogs too) and is an excellent way to shake out the week and meet some new people.
The Beginner Ladies
8:00 am: Thanks to our ambassador Hilary Ewart, we’ve added a special beginner ladies run every Saturday at 8 am. This group caters specifically to new trail runners and those who are concerned with ‘being last’ or ‘slowing everyone down.’ There’s no such thing in trail running, and the hilarious Hilary will have you laughing and giggling so much that you’ll forget you are even running.
