We’ve teamed up with Trails and Tarmac to offer SOB runners the best way to prepare for your run across the Siskiyous this July!



What is Trails and Tarmac (T&T)?

Trails and Tarmac is the premiere coaching service for long distance runners in Southern Oregon with the company’s origins and operations right here in Ashland. T&T coaches have raced and volunteered at SOB trail runs for the past ten years and understand these races as well as anybody.

Trails and Tarmac is a full service coaching business employing only fully custom plans and highly communicative coach/athlete relationships.

What can Trails and Tarmac do for you?

Trails and Tarmac would like to offer SOB participants a special coaching offer for 50k, 50m, and 100k runners. For anyone signed up for these SOB races in 2024 T&T will take $60 off per month for your first four months of coaching (new athletes only). Just let them know you are signed up and the discount will apply. The normal T&T coaching price is $235 per month (with only month to month commitment required).

For those running the 15k distance, T&T has created a special plan for $125 per month. This fully custom training plan is more beginner oriented and focuses on teaching many of the core training principles that are the backbone of any quality coaching plan. You will get to work one on one with one of our coaches with weekly communication and feedback. This special program is $125 per month for up to 4 months of coaching.
