However, there are currently no regular trail running clinics in the Country that will help guide those beginner participants or those who are just transitioning. Sure some of our regular running workouts can be applied to strengthen and develop our running legs for the mountains, but what about the other essential trail running preparations and techniques? Would you ask google and follow the stories and experiences from foreign races? Or would it be better to learn from our own sport veterans who have gained the experience and atmosphere of our own races?
If you rather choose the 2nd option, then you're in for a great bonding and fellowship!
