Salomon Broken Arrow Skyrace


We're excited to once again offer two distinct Broken Arrow-specific training plans from our friends at Trails and Tarmac. Trails and Tarmac coaches, founded by Ryan Ghelfi and David Laney, have attended our race since the inaugural 2016 year. Not only do they love the course and European-style vibe, most of their coaching staff have raced each distance. This gives them first hand knowledge of the course and what it takes to succeed on race day. 

Additionally, the stable of coaches at Trails and Tarmac consists of some of the finest ultra and trail athletes in the United States including, Ryan Ghelfi, David Laney, Jenn Shelton, Alex Nichols, Camelia Mayfield, Brett Hornig, Rachel Drake, Cole Watson and Tyler Green



Trails and Tarmac are delighted to offer two training plans for for athletes

participating in the October 2021 Broken Arrow. 


For all 26/52k Runners: Trails and Tarmac will extend a three month coaching discount for all 26k and/or 52k Broken Arrow runners. While their normal coaching price is $225 per month, they are generously offering a $50 per month discount for Broken Arrow runners, making the monthly commitment a mere $175. This offer is valid for three months of training, after which the rate reverts to $225 per month. This training will give you a leg up on the competition, as they can share vital insights into course specifics and how to manage massive vertical gain and loss on race day. 


For 11k or VK Runners: The experienced coaches at Trails and Tarmac have also created a less expensive, yet highly efficient coaching option for our 11k and/or VK runners. Trails and Tarmac coaches will provide individualized training plans and monthly coaching correspondence to get you on track and keep you there in preparation for race day. 


Even better, the plans are 100% custom and made from scratch. These plans are designed specifically for each individual runner based on their training history, life commitments, and race goals. The cost for this special training plan + monthly coaching correspondence is $85 per month. Please note that these plans are not available for 26k or 52k runners and require a three month commitment. 


And ... each Trails and Tarmac athlete who signs up for a Broken Arrow training plan will not only get one of the new Trail and Tarmac custom racing hats with topo map from the Olympic Valley printed under the bill.... but be treated to coffee and pastries on race weekend! At this social gathering, you will have the opportunity to talk to your coach in person, mingle .... and get that stoke level to 11 before the racing starts!
