IT’S TIME TO TAKE AN ‘OFF-ROAD’ URBAN ADVENTAGE

Living in a city doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the strength and fitness benefits of off-road running. Add variety to your urban training to become a stronger, more flexible and better motivated runner

If you live in a predominantly urban area, reading about all the fantastic fitness benefits that trail running has to offer can leave you feeling a little left out. It’s all well and good learning about the fact that running over rocky, muddy terrain is great for improving ankle strength and proprioception, or that racing up a steep, lung-busting hill will do wonders for your glutes and overall stamina. But if you live in an environment that offers mostly flat pavements, what’s a girl to do?

The good news is that, with just a little bit of creativity and some willingness to think outside the box, there are heaps of ways you can mix up your usual running routine, making the most of your urban environment and street furniture in order to maximise your fitness gains and add more variety to your workouts.
