Trail running: some definitions
To deal with unevenness and uneven terrain, it is necessary to undertake specific routines, to be maintained in training even during the winter period.
As many people know, when you start a challenge it's hard to stop and in recent years skyrunning's competitions have become more and more popular. These competitions range from 22 km to 50 km, with at least 400 meters of elevation gain that also include the so-called "Vertical Races". These are runs with rips of 300 metres of elevation gain in less than 5 km. All very nice and "superhuman", so how do you prepare for a trail running race?
