Our first meeting is the program orientation. It is a chance to meet your coaches, ask questions, and review the training schedule and program. This is an informational meeting only.

Note: Although there will be no workout following the orientation meeting, we strongly encourage all registrants to attend.
Our first workout is January 10, 2016, so as not to compete with the distraction of the December and New Year’s holiday weekends. But keep your training going as best you can during the holidays as we will dive right in on our first workout.


We offer two training programs

Sacfit Ultra Runners is a fun, yet serious, ultra-marathon training program. The program is specially tailored for our two target races - The Way To Cool (WTC) 50K and the American River (AR) 50 Mile Endurance Run. We will also have a supplemental program for those training for the Canyons 100K

Because our program is geared toward strong coaching interaction with each individual teammate, the 2016 team is limited to 50 people.

Sacfit Trail Trekkers is an introductory trail running and walking program. This program is specially tailored for those who would like to run and walk on trails, but are not interested in long distances or Ultra Races. This team is limited to 30 people.
