Trail running is a great way to stay fit and enjoy nature at the same time. It also helps build confidence in new runners. Here are some helpful tips for beginners or people just starting out.

Choose a Trail Run.
There are so many different trails out there that it’s hard to choose where to go. Here are some things to consider when choosing a trail run.
1) What kind of terrain do you prefer? Flat, hilly, rocky, muddy, etc.?
2) Do you want to see wildlife?
3) Are you looking for a challenge?

Prepare Yourself.
If you’re new to trail running, you should prepare yourself before hitting the trails. This includes getting proper shoes, clothing, and gear. It also means knowing what to expect once you hit the trail.
4) Know your limits. Don’t push yourself too far.
5) Be prepared for weather changes.
6) Have fun!
