*Due to storm damage, we’ve had to adapt this route to minimise risk to those attending. Although we have tried to create a route which is as runnable and safe as possible, there may be some parts of the route which are trickier to negotiate due to fallen trees and other debris. As always, everyone participates at their own risk and please use common sense whilst on the trail.*
This is a session for anyone who is has either been wanting to get into trail running but is unsure where to start or for those who want to learn a few more skills and technqiues.
Coach Rik will lead you through some non-technical trails around Les Quennevais and the Sand Dunes. The session will be a mix of chatting, walking and running and will last a maximum of 90mins.
This session will cover:
– A talk around what trails are and what trail running looks like
– The benefits of trail running
– Shoes, clothing & kit for trail running
– How to find trails in Jersey
– What it feels like to run on different terrain
– How to run flats, downhill & uphill
– Things to be aware of when trail running
We’ll finish up with brekkie at Off the Rails for anyone who is keen.
Rock n Road will also be able to provide some Salomon Thundercross trail shoes for you to try and get a feel for how trail shoes feel compared to road shoes.
