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  thrilled finally (after trying for two years to get it on the schedule) to have the chance to share her hobby with her students.

 In regard to the difficulty of the class she responded, “I wanted to make sure the class is amenable to all skill levels”, and encouraged anyone to sign up, regardless of their experience.

Head’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 “You don’t have to be a fast runner to be a trail runner.”
