Welcome to our UltraLadies and UltraLadies’Men
2018 Training Program!

Please join us for the 25th year of UltraLadies. We are primarily a women's training group, but we also welcome UltraLadies'Men and have experience in coaching a wide array of athletes, race distances, terrains and altitudes.

Whether you are new at trails or are a veteran who wants to better your performance, we are here to guide, coach and celebrate your hard work and success.

The Ultra Ladies and Ultra Ladies Men mentors include experienced runners who have completed a variety of marathons and ultras including at least one 100 mile race. They all bring different experiences from being a certified yoga instructor, marathon pace leading, RRCA Certified Coaches to overcoming breast cancer.

“When you train smart a race is simply a celebration of your hard work.”

New Group Starts on July 28

Join us for our Summer/Fall Training Program beginning on July 28. Whether you are a new trail runner or you want to train for ultra marathons, we can help you get there. You will run with marked trails, in the company of like-minded people and experienced coaches & mentors. We also offer bi-weekly tempo runs, training clinics, race coupons and % off from our Sponsor Store Fleet Feet Encino/Westlake to find the best in trail running gear. The value of these deals almost pays for your training!
