SIERRA TRAILBLAZERS RUNNING CLUB
The Sierra TrailBlazers Running Club is based out of Nevada County, California. The foothills in Grass Valley, Nevada City, and Auburn are amazingly beautiful areas abundant with parks and trails, and we try to take advantage of it any chance we have. Walking, jogging, hiking, trekking, running - whatever you want to label it. Just step away from your device & get outdoors.
WHAT WE DO
As a club we engage in community activities and social events to publicize the benefits of exercising. We not only run, we give back to our community in a number of ways. We award an annual scholarship to a student in our local high school track program. We volunteer for trail maintenance and at races, such as the Western States 100. And we join with other groups to offer community exercise programs at least once per year.

Old and young, newbies to veteran runners, covering all distances from a couple kilometers to 100+ milers. The Sierra TrailBlazers always has something going on. Check out an example of the monthly newsletter you'll receive that has all the local running dirt you need.
Whether you are looking to improve your health, your attitude, or you run just to get out of the house and get some "me" time and meet some new people from all walks of life.
For our members we offer:
Fun Runs, Weekly Group Training Runs, Volunteer Opportunities, Potlucks & Speakers, a Monthly Newsletter and so much more!
Every year we are able to volunteer at the Western States Endurance Run. It is a great experience to see every runner complete 55.7 miles through The Wilderness and The Canyons by the time they get to the Michigan Bluff Aid Station. The last of the runners are coming through as night falls. And all runners still have 44.5 miles to go!
The 2019 race is June 29-30.
