“I could never resist the call of the trail”
Although I am currently more Sloth Steve than Buffalo Bill, it is true that the trail has been calling my name.
Two of my favourite events last year were the Hoka Highland Fling and Jedburgh Three Peaks Ultra Marathon Relays and my main event this year (knees permitting) will see me scramble up a Vertical Kilometre in Glencoe.
There is something special about running free through Scotland’s wilderness. Away from congested roads and grey buildings. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city and often a chance to get away from our troubles.
Trail running is the ideal way to clear the mind.
But, it is my previously discussed knee injury that is making my transition to trails a necessity and thanks to North Face I will be getting an early chance to see if a softer terrain will be kinder to my dodgy knees.
For on 31st May NeverStopGlasgow comes to town (and our parks) and a lucky few will get to trial the latest Ultra trail shoes from North Face in a special (and free) trail run evening.
