Description

Trail running is an individual sport where competitors run across terrain that includes mountains, deserts and forests. Trail running differs greatly from running in that it is performed on hiking trails that traverse varying terrain like hills, mountains, deserts, and forests; these trails are often inaccessible by road except at the trail head. It is common for trail runners to ascend and descend thousands of miles during a trail run.
