Avid runners can now start fighting their inner couch potato while running across rough ground! Trail running is a popular new sport that offers runners many advantages. La Loupe took the first step and looked at this new type of exercise up close.
The trail, the track, the course is any kind of path that is not paved. Be it a forest road, a path through the meadows, a hiking path or a scree field – all these are perfect for trail runners. For them it means this: almost unlimited freedom and an opportunity to improvise. It frees the mind and trains the entire motor systems. Different kinds of terrain improve the focus, each step improves coordination and reactive capacity.
