My Advice for New Trail Racers

I was recently put in touch with a local martial arts instructor who was asking for some advice she can provide to her students who are looking to attend a half marathon my local run club puts on.

So I gave her some training plan suggestions for people who can run but need to take it up a notch for a trail half marathon.

But I wanted to take my advice up a notch, so I made this video and article on some general quick thoughts I had for new trail racers.

  1. Get on the trail for training.
  2. Practice hydration/nutrition during long runs.
  3. You’re going to have to walk during the event, so speed hike during training!

Watch the video below for more and please comment with any advice YOU have!
