This is Runnovation.
Now racing has taken to the trails, mud pits and mountains with variable terrain, altitude and obstacles adding to the challenge. Heightened balance and agility come into play as racers navigate climbs and descents, run over rocks and logs, and cross streams and mud obstacles.
Runners who could once get by with strong legs alone, now need solid core strength and endurance to persevere at trail events that can take significantly longer to complete than road races of the same distance.
