Something happens to you when you are out into the woods or forest alone..Ohhhh, did I mention that it’s dark and it’s in the night? Hmmm, the nearest people or runners 2 KM away in each direction, and having spent every ounce of physical and mental energy available in your reserves. The complete silence/ the sound of the woods or forest envelope you, your senses are heightened and alert, and you loose your sense of time, of place……hmmmmm…you start to hallucinate…..”Annabelle! Annabelle! She is right behind of you!! Run for your life……Other times you are keenly aware of your surroundings,” Bugs! Bugs! It’s alive! It’s alive! EEEEEeeekkk…..
Trail running isn’t intimidating. It does not mean you have to run a 21 KM, go vegan and eat protein diets all day long, and or maybe grow a beard (ehhem….although beards are scientifically proven to make men run 14.2% faster). Trail running is simply about being out in the nature, placing one foot in front of the other, and repeating for as long you feel like.
So why should you consider trail running? If you are a trail runner, I do not need to preach to the converted about the joys and thrills of getting outside! There are many reasons, but most notably is that it can open up a whole new world to you! More so than hiking, trail running can get you to new trails, vistas and summits you have never seen..INTO THE WOODS NIGHT TRAIL and beyond…….!!
There is a freedom and connection to nature on the trail that you simply cannot replicate anywhere else. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to do a run on a trail, stop whatever you are doing and get yourself signed up for INTO THE WOODS- Night Trail run by Compressport now at https:// thenextstep.events on the 1st October at Semenyih Eco Venture Resort & Recreation.
You won’t be sorry but you will fall in love, promise!
