Coyote Running is excited to announce our upcoming running program:
The Coyote Running Trail Love training program will focus on the trails, but have some Tuesday night road elements to help all distance runners get the most from their training. We shall be training 3 out of 4 weekends (on average), and many long runs will be focused this season on the Sean O'Brien ultra course. Long runs will range from 60 minutes to 5+hours on either Saturday or Sunday mornings, 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 runs from Sunday, October 7th to Tuesday, February 5th (approximately 18 weeks). The focal points of this program will be periodized training for a each distance of the Sean O'Brien ultra -HOWEVER- we will also seek to assist those of you interested in other events, including road marathons, 50k's, 50-milers, and beyond. You do not need to be training for a race to be considered for 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 Friday, October 12th (or when we reach the 50 athlete program max). We will notify our Trail Love 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 (approximately 50 athletes) 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.

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.
