Whether you're a seasoned runner or new to the trails, learn the basics, hone your skills, and enjoy the freedom of trail running with the Trail Conference and our friends at Merrell and MovNat.

This is a participation-based workshop where new trail runners can gain confidence on the trails by learning essential techniques and veteran runners can hone their skills. Learn techniques from Dr. Phil Lombardo, Doctor of Physical Therapy and MovNat certified instructor, on Natural Movement to improve running efficiency and awareness.

During this workshop, we'll cover 2-3 miles on the trails of Ramapo Valley County Reservation. This workshop is for all fitness levels with plenty of breaks in between for coaching and demonstrations.

Refreshments and giveaways will conclude our workshop.

Workshop will begin and end at our Headquarters. Parking will be available at Headquarters and at Ramapo Valley County Reservation.
