This fall a group of trail runners will train, travel and compete as part of Team ELM (Equilibrium Lifestyle Management) in the XTERRA Half Marathon Trail Running World Championships in Hawaii on Nov. 24.

The race will take place over some of the most scenic and diverse terrain on the planet at the majestic Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii. The 4,000-acre ranch reaches from the steep mountain cliffs to the sparkling sea and the terrain varies from dense rainforest to broad open valleys, with close up views of beautiful white sand beaches and awesome verdant cliff faces. The epic nature of Kualoa Ranch has served as a scenic backdrop for numerous television shows and films such as Jurassic Park and Godzilla.

Beginning Aug. 18, runners will train for 14 weeks leading up to the event on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. The training program includes weekly coached running sessions with ELM, a 2.5 hour trail racing workshop led by Sarah Seads and a detailed, day-by-day training plan to prepare to compete in the technical trail half marathon. In addition, participants receive an ELM race jersey, entry into the race and a race weekend support/coaching from Seads.
