More Info

Trail running is gaining steam as popular sport in the United States. The country is incredibly diverse. Its terrain and landscape, cultures and communities, and overall atmosphere and environment change drastically from one region to another. Running in particular areas is a great way to explore some of the rural areas that are not frequently visited. Classic hiking and trekking routes, like the Appalachian Trail or the Pacific Crest Trail, can be broken down into smaller running segments, adding history to activity. Beginners to trail running can easily find running groups in every part of the country. Beach running is also a discipline that is often associated with trail running, for those who are looking for programs in Florida, California, and beyond.




Good to Know



The weather in the United States varies drastically by region. In higher altitudes - as well as the Midwest and Northeaest, the temperature is mild during running season, with cold and adverse winters. During summer, primarily in the south and southwest, summers can be hot, humid, and hazardous.
