I love running on trails so much that I can’t believe tomorrow’s 10K event is my first trail race. Should be interesting with four creek crossings!
For my book, author and Olympian Jeff Galloway told me that running on trails “is powerful and primitive.” He says “positive empowerment comes from almost every trail run I do. I look for trails wherever I go.”
A good place to start is with the American Trail Running Association which has a state-by-state calendar of trail races on their website here.
