That is why we do so much in our stores and in the community to encourage trail running, hiking, biking, and getting into the woods in general. Not only do we stock the absolute greatest trail running footwear and gear, more importantly we provide numerous opportunities for you to experience the fantastic trail systems we have in Los Angeles. After all, who doesn't love getting a little dirty sometimes!
Fleet Feet Running Club is about so much more than road running. We also love hitting the hills and exploring all the trails Los Angeles has to offer. Rock Runners (formerly called Winter or Summer Trail Series) meets for 4 weeks in a row, twice a year: summer and winter.
This series runs a different trail in the Los Angeles area each month, exploring the hills of Santa Monica and Malibu to the views off Angeles Crest and Glendora Ridge. The length of the trail runs will be 5-10 miles. All runs are FREE!
Deeply embedded in the the laid back, casual culture of trail running is the profound respect for the trails and the folks who build and maintain them, as well as the earth itself. Trail runners are also not the only people who use the trails. Mountain bikers, hikers, horse back rides and adventure racers all rely on the same systems and quality of trails to enjoy their respective activities.
Like any sport, trail running has a culture and a code of conduct; we consider respect for the trails the most important value of any trail runner. Beyond that, it's a pretty casual, happy-go-lucky kind of culture that has been luring people in for decades! Love the trails and they will love you back.
