GLR 002: Get Lost in Trail Running

Get Lost Racing Episode #2

Get lost in the endurance sport of Trail Running by learning about the gear you need, where to start, and how you get into the trail racing community.

What the heck is Trail Running?

Trail running is a sport just like it sounds, where you run on trails.

But unlike the paved version of running, trail running has some nuances and a culture that requires you to embrace some things that you may not be prepared to do if your into 5K’s or marathons, and anything in-between.

Now a trail run normally extends 5 to 10 miles into the wilderness.

Now you could talk about trails in the Southwest, or trails along the West Coast with big open areas near cities, not too far away from urban environments.

However, most trail runs are in the woods and far away from civilization.
