Wilderness First Aid is the assessment and treatment of injuries and illness that are experienced in remote locations, typically over an hour from health care services. Time is the essential element distinguishing Wilderness First Aid from basic first aid courses.

You will learn how to identify signs and symptoms of common backcountry injuries and illnesses, determine whether they are serious issues that require emergent action or can be dealt with locally.

Please Note: A current Adult CPR/AED Certification is required for course completion, and must be completed separately from the WFA Course.

Quad Rock Training Run #2

Our first two Quad Rock Training Runs of the season are on the books!

Look forward to joining in each Saturday, starting at the Soldier Canyon trailhead in Lory State Park. Details will be posted in the Fort Collins Trail Runners Facebook group.

All are welcome! Feel free to come along even if you’re not planning to run one of the races, and feel free to invite whoever you like.

To get to the trailhead, take the first left once you’re in the park, then you’ll see the Soldier Canyon lot on the left. This is where the start/finish will be for the Quad Rock races.

Distances will typically be according to the official Quad Rock training plan, and explore different parts of the course and each of the 6 major climbs week-by-week.

Everyone can run their own pace, so bring a map to find your way around if you are new to the park.

A state park pass is required. Dogs on leash are welcome. This time of year, there isn’t any water out on the course, so you’ll want to bring enough fluids to cover the full distance you plan to run.
