WHY TRAIL RUNNING?
Trail running is a sport which consists of running and hiking over trails. Whether you’re stuck in a running rut, bored by your usual routes or just plain hate the treadmill, it might be time to leave the road behind and head to the trails. And you won’t be alone; the increase in popularity of trail running over recent years has been huge.
And there are lots of reasons why trail running brings a number of benefits:
Good for your body
The softer surfaces can be easier on your muscles and joints, taking away a lot of stress from the impact that you’d normally get running on harder surfaces.
Good for your brain
Trail running also burns 10 percent more calories. Runners get a tougher workout because the uneven terrain demands more lateral movements that keep the core engaged.
Good for your soul
Uganda is a beautiful country and trail running is a great way to explore it. Many people find the sounds of nature, such as birds chirping or the running water of a stream, to be very relaxing.
Trail running is akin to being a kid on a playground. There are puddles to jump in, streams to jump over, logs to climb, and trees to duck under. Forget the same old view of the busy city roads, trails are a constant adventure.
