Highlighted 2019 Program - Grand Canyon

Join an adventurous group of Austin area trail and road runners for an unforgettable adventure in one of North America’s most iconic landscapes, the Grand Canyon. On Friday, May 3rd, a growing list including over 30 runners will step off the south rim of the Grand Canyon at zero dark thirty for one of many adventures. Choose between a trip along the south rim trails, a journey to the Colorado River and back, an excursion to the north rim and back (by way of bus or your own two feet), or double (or quadruple?) down and cross the canyon four times. We have athletes running in one of all of these adventures. You can train with us for the Grand Canyon by signing up for the year round training option below.

Rogue trail project

Whether you’re looking to improve fitness, train for a specific adventure, or be part of an amazing run community, our year-round training program can help you achieve that!

The Rogue Trail Project blends principles and tactics of advanced road marathon training with the principles and tactics of ultra marathon training.

We love performance results but we balance our training with a concern for health span and longevity. We support athletes in finding the best lifestyle to support their happiness as well as athletic pursuits.

Rogue Trail Project athletes conquer new heights by focusing on lifestyle, strength training, mobility drills, run training, and detailed awareness of how to navigate the logistics of ultra running events. Whether you’re chasing a specific race performance, an FKT attempt, or an adventure we haven’t dreamt up yet, we can help you on your journey.

We use roads and the track to stay sharp and improve running skill and economy. We go to the trails to find solace, develop our technical trail skills, and experiment with gear, nutrition, and hydration strategies. Oh, and don’t forget, most of all, we go to the trail to have lots of fun!

Our training group meets Tuesday (5:30 am), Thursday (5:30 am), and Saturday (7:00 am).

For Fall & Winter 2018/2019, we are offering a 19-week training program designed around the Goodwater Trail Race on January 26th.

For spring 2019, we have two options: First, you can join us to training for any and all of the 2019 Rogue Trail Series. Second, we offer a training program designed around a Grand Canyon adventure in May 2019. This program is designed for athletes who want to run rim-to-rim-to-rim starting from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon AND for athletes who want to run rim-to-rim or rim-to-river.     

Our 19-week Goodwater program starts September 23rd; although, you can join anytime! Your coaching staff is comprised of the Goodwater race directors and Goodwater race veterans, so you'll gain expert insight on how to train and prepare for any distance at Goodwater.

Our Grand Canyon programs are underway and ongoing. It’s time to sign up, make reservations, and start building your base! Your coaches are wilderness adventure veterans who have also completed some variation of every Grand Canyon adventure option available.

We work within a systematic training protocol designed to stress all aerobic systems, build ancillary strength, fortify your mental preparedness, and equip you with the gear and nutritional skills necessary to tackle any goal. Expect team workouts to traverse media ranging from roads to tracks to trails.
