Trail running is one of Britain’s fastest growing sports and it puts you in the heart of the landscape and gets you away from the tarmac! Not only that, it’s a highly accessible sport and something that the whole family can get involved in.
Salomon would like to see more people take up trail running and they’re holding a series of free events this summer to help you discover a trail in your city while exploring the local parks, forests and trails.
Salomon’s City Trail team will be in urban parks across the country setting up two pre-marked courses for people of any age and ability. We’ve worked with Salomon to provide maps of the routes for each event and if you take part, you’ll also get a month’s free trial of our OS getamap service, giving you online access to plot, print and share routes with our OS Explorer and OS Landranger maps.
At each event, there’ll be a selection of trail shoes to try out, insole and foot health experts (from partners Superfeet) on hand to offer advice, professional athletes to chat to and even Suunto GPS watches to test.
You won’t be expected to race on the day, you can either join a group run with a Salomon athlete, or run at any time at your own pace. Several sessions have already taken place, but there are more over the next six weeks:
You can find out more and register for one the trail running events on the Salomon website.
