Coyote Running is excited to announce our upcoming running program:
CHASING UNICORNS (yah we know, ridiculous right? But isn't that always the case with distance running.)!
November 10th, 2019 – March 8th, 2020
The Coyote Running CHASING UNICORNS training program will focus on the trails, but have road elements to help all distance runners get the most from their training. Long runs will range from 60 minutes to 5+hours on either Saturday or Sunday, and we'll hit a wide variety of terrain. Quality runs w/stairs, hills, and speed will happen on Tuesday nights (6:30-8:00pm).
This program starts this November and runs through March. The focal points of this program will be periodized training for whatever unicorn you are chasing, including road marathons (hello LAM and Boston!), 50k's, 50-milers, and beyond. You do not need to be training for a race to be part of this program. If you are seeking to improve at shorter distances, we promise to take good care of you. This program's primary aim is to help you enjoy running more, stay healthy, and improve at every distance and terrain, while having a blast doing so among like-minded crazy friends.
PROGRAM REGISTRATION / APPLICATION PERIOD
Applications will be accepted starting NOW through November 17th (or when we reach the program max). We will notify our CHASING UNICORNS training program members by email that they are invited to register. While we hope to include all applicants, some seasons we are at max capacity and need to make other training program recommendations to a few. Please know we do not intend to turn anyone away, but we know what our maximum capacity with 2-3 coaches is to maintain the quality of programming we are committed to.
We are thrilled to help you chase whatever unicorn you are after this Fall into 2020!

Weekend Long Runs are focused on helping each Coyote become a more balanced runner, leaving no stone unturned. Long practices alternate Sat / Sun mornings and are predominantly on the trails. On the trails we'll work on mental and physical toughness, power and stabilizing muscle strength. To encourage necessary rest/recovery, we will schedule every 4th weekend off throughout the program (i.e. no weekend practice).
Tuesday Night Runs are specialty workouts that alternate between hill repeats, tempo paced runs, pace assessment workouts and more. We'll work on foot speed, impact conditioning and specific pacing.
Thursday Morning Runs also known as Coyote Thursdays are community runs open to all. These runs are always on the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains, rotating between 7 locations and are usually between 3 to 9 miles. Join us on Facebook where event details are posted each week (Coyote Running - the SoCal Coyotes).
Clinics are lead by coaches and other industry professionals to help you break through old challenges, teach you to properly hydrate, fully replace electrolytes, get adequate calories, and pace yourself so that you won't fade like a K-Mart beach towel at the end of the race. Other clinic focuses include core work, proper running form and breathing techniques.
If you are ready for something different, something new, then you are ready to rock it out with Coyote Running to your best race yet.
