The Science of Trail Running Better, Faster, & Injury Free

This session will be a fun and engaging look at how so much of what we believe about running and trail running is scientifically not true. We’ll discuss an all-encompassing approach to running better and injury free, and how to hit the trail with confidence.

Golden will outline how he managed to run a road marathon in 2:30 on 25 miles a week of nearly all trail mileage, and how to use the trail to successfully train while having more fun. Much of what we discuss will benefit hikers as well. Along the way, we’ll clinic on running technique, talk about common running myths, injury prevention, foot health, and more.
