Is it any wonder that it has in recent years become one of the world’s most popular fitness activities? This fully illustrated, one-of-a-kind guide is a valuable resource for trail runners of all abilities, whose interests range from running trails as part of their training for adventure races or high school cross country to competing in ultradistance trail races or endeavoring to run the Appalachian, Muir Woods, or Continental Divide Trails.  The Ultimate Guide to Trail Running provides all the essential information, 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.
