As someone who primarily road runs in the city, getting out on the trail is my escape. It's more than just fresh air, it takes me to a healthy mental place.

Trail running has always been a form of complete escapism for me; it's exhilarating and challenging in equal measure but leaves you feeling accomplished and like you can tackle anything life throws your way!

Victoria Stears

Running for me is a daily reprieve from the pressures of daily life. I moved from the road into trail running about two years ago. Hitting the trails gives me a chance to reset my mind and reconnect with body whilst surrounded in beauty and nature.

Ben Hobbs

Losing myself amongst nature on the trails has proven to be a lifeline, by lifting my spirits and improving my mental health. This sense of purpose is so important for me since I've had to reclaim the routes for my own... on wheels.

Frankie Butler

Untitleddesign20210218T184127.583

Trail running makes me a happier person, connects me with a nature, which I really enjoy. I feel wild and free when I'm on my trails 🙃

Magda Kaminska

Untitleddesign20210220T122908.056

To me, trail running removes the playing field all together, it removes the boundaries that come from road running and allow you to feel a full sense of adventure and intimacy with the natural world. Going off the beaten path is where I feel alive, free and at my most inspired.
