What is trail running?

Trail running is exploding in popularity throughout the World! As humans, we’re seeking out beautiful places to enjoy the outdoors while escaping the hustle and bustle of life. 

If you’re new to the sport or you’re making the switch from road running or you’ve never run a step in your life, Welcome! This is the place for you! 

Let’s start with a basic description of trail running. In general, any unpaved surface can be considered a trail! We always stick to established routes because we love the environment and the local flora and fauna. 

Trails can be flat stretches across the outback, or they can include steep climbs and descents in the mountains. 

Your skill level will determine which type of trail is best for your run and we use a colour code to help you pick the best one for you! 

We’ve created a handy guide to help you get started on the right foot (pun intended!) because we want to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable experience while out on the trails. Check out our HERE!
