Hmmm find a good pair of shoes, find some cool trail running friends, don’t be too hard on yourself, stay safe, don’t litter, and have fun!

Best advice for new trail runners

Enjoy all that the trail has to offer! It's not always about going fast. Sometimes, you need to slow down and take in the views. You'll never regret it because most of them are pretty epic.

Best advice for new trail runners

Always know where you are. Know a terrain feature that can guide you back to your start. Tell someone where you are going and how long you plan to be gone.

Best advice for new trail runners

First and foremost, have fun. Get dirty. Leave the headphones. Check in on other runners and don't be afraid to lose 30 seconds to help someone else out.
