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.
- Get on the trail for training.
- Practice hydration/nutrition during long runs.
- 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!
