What is trail running?

Trail runners follow off-road paths and tracks which can be found everywhere from city centre parks to remote mountain areas. Trails take runners to all sorts of interesting places including rivers and canals, country parks and estates, beaches and cliff tops, ancient woodland, remote glens, high mountain passes and even hill tops. Following paths is much easier than running on untracked ground. This is particularly true in Scotland which is home to many bogs, tussocks and boulder fields as well as knee deep heather and bracken.

Trail running is whatever you, the runner, wants it to be. Trail running is a short jog in a beautiful place with a bunch of mates and a picnic stop. Trail running is an exhilarating solo battle against the elements, tiring muscles and fading daylight. And everything in between. Trail runs short & long, near to town & far afield, are simply just great ways to get out and enjoy Scotland.
