Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Trail running combines all the health and fitness benefits of walking and road running with the outdoor adventure of such sports as hiking and mountain biking—not to mention the spiritual renewal from a day spent communing with nature. No wonder it has become one of the world’s most popular fitness activities. The Ultimate Guide to Trail Running provides all the essential information needed, including finding trails and getting started; managing ascents and descents with ease; maneuvering off-road obstacles; strength, stretching, and cross-training exercises; selecting proper shoes, clothing, and accessories; safety on the trail; and racing and other trail events.

About the Author

Adam W. Chase, an accomplished ultrarunner, snowshoe racer, and adventure athlete, is president of the All American Trail Running Association.

 

Nancy Hobbs has been running trails and directing running events since the mid-1980s, and her articles and photographs have been published in such magazines as Trail Runner and Runner’s World. She is the founder and executive director of the All American Trail Running Association.

Format: Paperback
I'm an avid runner and do most of my training/racing on roads. Thought I'd pick this up to get some info on converting to trails or at least running more on trails. I will still do so, but not because of having read this book. The only information of value for me was the section on animals and what to do when you see them. Ie. Grizzly vs Black bear, etc. Other than that, the authors make it a point to put down road-runners at every chance they can get. From footwear and clothing choices, to attitudes and mindsets-these authors clearly feel that they are better than your average road runner. Most of the trail runners I know are easy-going, laid-back, and very likely to help anyone out--definitely not the snarky Chase and his co-author. However, having said all that, if you are a beginning runner and can ignore the unnecessary side-bars, you could gain some general running knowledge from this book.

While the book does have a lot of good information, I found it all to be overwhelming, almost like they were writing the book for people who already ran trails. It made me want to give up because I felt like I could never be as good as these other people the book was referring to.

I thought this was a helpful introduction to trail running. I recently became interested in running trails after completing my first marathon, and deciding later to delve into ultramarathons and trails. I only gave it four stars because I found some of the information to be repetitive of so many running books on the market. However, if you do not have many running books and are interested in what it takes, and what you need, to get started on trails, this is a good book.

Good book for beginners who don't know much about trail running. It covers all of the bases from techniques, clothing, dealing with weather changes, hydration,and encounters with wild animals.
