Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you’d better be running. ― Christopher McDougall, Born to Run
Trail running is more than just a sport or discipline, it’s a life philosophy and origin experience. Just think that humans have always run…and Africa’s hills, forests and mountain paths are perfect just for that!
Trail running means moving along, enjoying wonderful scenery, zoning in free of any negative thoughts; a unique ecologically intelligent way of life, which gives one tremendous satisfaction in the close contact with nature that it offers. Above all, trail running leaves a permanent memory in the minds of those who have lived it.
