Starting March 1st, join us every Sunday (except Easter) for our free training program. Led by our Race Director, Charlie Marko, you'll get the guidance you need to be ready for race day. We'll even have special guests who'll share their training tips and give expert advice. Whether you're a "first timer" whose goal is to cross the finish line, or a veteran trail runner looking to improve upon your time from last year, this program is for you.


The training group meets at 8:00am at Brand Park, located at 1601 W. Mountain Street, Glendale 91201 in front of the Verdugo Mountains 10K Banner located near the Doctors House (on the west side of the park). Be sure to bring water and wear appropriate footwear and clothing.


SESSION DATES: March 1, March 8, March 15, March 22, March 29, April 5, April 19, and April 26.

No session on April 12 (Easter).

NOTE: Please arrive a few minutes early to sign a waiver before we begin. The signed waiver is valid for all 8 dates if you should decide to attend all 8 training sessions. The training programs run about 60-90 minutes, gradually increasing each week. Many may head up to a certain point on the trail and come down on their own if their personal schedule does not allow for them stay on schedule with the group the whole time. Many hikers will come down at different times. The pace and duration is really set by the individual.
