A brand new trail running class will be offered this semester to all Cuesta students interested in fitness and the outdoors.
Participants will meet at a different trail each Saturday, introducing them to as many new locations as possible throughout the course. The class will include a short lecture on health concepts, running equipment etc. and a 3-4 mile run.
Allison Head, Department Chair of Kinesiology, Health Science, and Athletics, is Â thrilled finally (after trying for two years to get it on the schedule) to have the chance to share her hobby with her students.
Â In regard to the difficulty of the class she responded, â€œI wanted to make sure the class is amenable to all skill levelsâ€, and encouraged anyone to sign up, regardless of their experience.
Headâ€™s goals for the class are to provide an avenue for students to improve their fitness, while appreciating the outdoors. She also aspires for the team to compete in a local race at the end of the semester.
To all those who may be interested in joining, but are unsure how they will shape up, Head assures that â€œYou donâ€™t have to be a fast runner to be a trail runner.â€
