Why Trail Running:
Well to start, running trails is just plain FUN!
But what else…
We often find that many road runners are afraid to make the cross-over to trail running. The view that trail running is more risky and you are more likely to get hurt is widely held, however this is not the truth. With some basic trail running skills any road runner can successfully cross into the vibrant world of trail running.
Trail running often offers a much more relaxing running environment. It is less about your pace and speed and ability level and more about being outside and getting the most out of the natural beauty we take for granted in the Pacific Northwest. Trail running gives you a great chance to get out into nature and enjoy the amazing summers in Washington. Many find peace on the trails as well. There is something about being in the solitude of nature and running in the dirt that puts the mind at ease. Trail running also offers a lower impact alternative to pounding the pavement. Dirt trails offer lower impact and the “bobbing and weaving” one needs to cut the dirt on the trails gives you strength and agility in working new muscle groups that road running doesn’t fully touch! Working regular trail runs into your training routine can actually have great benefit to your road running. Plus, you get to explore a world most never venture into. You get to see places you would have otherwise never seen and have experiences of a life time.
Who Should Join?
The short answer is anyone who is interested in running trails! We will cater the program to both those who have prior experience in trail running as well as to beginners. While some topics will be introductory, even those with trail experience are likely to pick up some new knowledge! This program will work best for people who have the ability to at least run 3 miles in a single work out and are running around 10 miles per week minimum (although we welcome everyone and can customize for anyone with less experience)! You should join us if:
You are interested in trying something new in running
You love to be outdoors and love nature
You are looking to gain more experience trail running
You are just looking to have some fun and enjoy some running company of friends
