Trail running for me means seeking beauty in nature, having freedom to explore new places & being resilient mentally & physically. What I find special about the Trail Pursuit community is that everyone is so unique, from different places & walks of life yet we share an obsession for the outdoors which breaks barriers for new friendships.
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!
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.
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.
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 🙃
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.
Wednesday 27th April from 7pm.
We welcome beginner & experienced trail runners alike. We'll stop for frequent water breaks & photos! Come & enjoy the adventure :)
