Muddy Buddies is a six-week program designed to get kids 10 and under comfortable trail running and racing! Each week the runners will warm up, play games, learn trail skills, and test themselves on different trail courses. Parent participation is welcome, this will be fun for all ages!

Muddy Buddies will be led by Josh Rossi of Pursuit Performance. Josh has been in the fitness industry for over 13 years, training both elite athletes and weekend warriors from New York City to the West Coast. He has spent over 20,000 hours training thousands of individuals and groups, including the cast of an HBO mini-series. Josh has extensive experience training all types of outdoor athletes and ages, from mountaineers to marathoners. Josh has coached and raced every distance from the mile to ultramarathons, including the Pikes Peak Marathon. He believes in a holistic and balanced approach to training, and can often be found working out alongside his wife and their three young children, or running behind a double stroller.
