A WORD ABOUT TRAIL RUNNING (source: salomon.com):

Trail running also involves more than running! It’s practiced in the mountains as well as hilly, rugged terrain and climbs are part of the sport.

During the ascents, you alternate walking and running. You sometimes use poles or push on your legs with your arms in the steeper sections.

During descents, you have to watch your footholds, landing on the forefoot to cushion the impact. You use your arms a lot for balance. Embrace the slope, run easy and have fun with the terrain!

Unlike road running, the terrain varies constantly when trail running. You run on trails, over rocks, mud and grass and perhaps even over snow during a white trail run. Even an urban or a city trail will provide a diverse route.
