Why trail running?
Eco-Friendly and Outdoor activities are becoming more and more popular around the world. Running exploded in popularity during the last seven years in Thailand and more and more people are going back to nature and outdoor activities. Trail running is a new and very fast growing sport that integrates physical and mental endurance, the great outdoors and adventure.

When people think of running, they most often picture running on the road or running on a track. But, a lot of runners opt to run on hiking trails in natural settings. Trail running combines the beautiful outdoor scenery of hiking with the physical challenges of running. If you are the type that loves being in beautiful, outdoor settings, then trail running is something for you.


In addition to the regular running benefits such as improved fitness level and potential weight loss, trail running is also a lot better on the joints. Running on hard surfaces such as pavement and concrete can be tough on the bones and joints. People who suffer from things like shin splints and knee problems often report that they don’t experience these problems on trails!
