We welcome runners of all levels and aim to create a supportive and encouraging environment where everyone can progress at their own pace. During our sessions, we'll explore a variety of trails, from easy to moderate difficulty, and cover topics such as technique, gear, safety, and trail etiquette. We'll also provide tips on nutrition and hydration, and how to train for longer distances. Not only will you improve your fitness and endurance, but you'll also experience the beauty of nature and the sense of accomplishment that comes with conquering new trails. And who knows, you might even make some new friends along the way! So what are you waiting for? Come join our Trail Running Intro Group and start your journey into the exciting world of trail running.

Nature and trail running have numerous benefits for both physical and mental health. Here are some of them:

  1. Improved cardiovascular fitness: Trail running involves running on uneven terrain, which makes the heart and lungs work harder, leading to improved cardiovascular fitness.

  2. Increased strength and endurance: Trail running engages more muscle groups than road running, including the core, hips, and legs, leading to increased strength and endurance.

  3. Reduced impact on joints: Trail running is softer on the joints than road running, as the softer terrain absorbs more shock.

  4. Mental health benefits: Running in nature has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and improve mood and self-esteem. The natural surroundings can also have a calming effect on the mind.

  5. Increased vitamin D exposure: Running in the sun can increase vitamin D levels, which is essential for healthy bones, teeth, and muscles.

  6. Connection with nature: Trail running provides an opportunity to connect with nature and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.

  7. Improved balance and coordination: Running on uneven terrain requires more balance and coordination, which can improve these skills over time.

Overall, nature and trail running can provide a challenging, yet rewarding workout, while also providing a connection with nature and numerous mental health benefits.
