WHY TRAILRUNNING? 1. ? - Different Biomechanics – You’re not pounding on the same flat surface as you would be on asphalt, so your body isn’t taking nearly as much as a punishment. 2. ? - No Right Angles – getting away from the concrete jungle and spending time in nature is good for the soul and the nervous system. Peer-reviewed science backs this up. 3. ? - Brain Calisthenics – When you first get into trail running it’s easy to compare it to playing a video game. You’re going fast and you’re trying not to trip. Once you get the bug, this becomes extremely fun and gratifying as an athlete, TARGET RACE We have 5 bibs for our target race Uwaharrie Gold Rush 50k to raffle as well! As always plant-based home-made goodies and a cooler full of water and bubbly water will always be with us! You don’t need to even be interested in running the target race to come run with us. All are welcome! Scott (I) will head up the ‘faster longer’ runners.
