2019 Autumn Trail Run

Reading Time: < 1 minute

It’s Autumn! Chlorophyll is breaking down which causes leaves to lose their green color and reveal a mix of yellow and orange. Cooler breezes caress leaves still clinging to trees which make seasonal music. All that is needed is to find a trail meandering through autumn’s splendor and to get outdoors. Afterall, who wouldn’t want to spend a beautiful autumn day outdoors in a magical place?

Why a trail run?

Entering a trail race is a fun way to get outdoors, enjoy autumn, and to complete an accomplishment that has so many health benefits. One neat thing about a trail run is that you don’t actually have to run. Trail races encourage runners, joggers, hikers, and walkers to participate. I often chose a mix of jogging and hiking depending on the terrain. Either way, a trail run is a great way to enjoy (and hopefully preserve) wild places.
