Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running - by Meghan Hicks & Bryon Powell~
Every year, countless runners, endurance athletes, and outdoor enthusiasts discover the sport of trail running. Whether they run for peace of mind, appreciation of nature, or competition, they find a sport unlike any other.
Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running captures the excitement, intensity, and appeal of the outdoors. From training and preparation to overcoming nature’s obstacles, it’s all here, accompanied by detailed instruction, expert insights, and stunning color photography.
The book itself isn’t meant to get the long-time trail runner from 98% to 100% of her potential. Rather, with it we hope to:
- Provide someone starting from scratch all the tools necessary to become a trail runner;
- Help other outdoor athletes feel as comfortable in their new mode of locomotion as in their more familiar ones;
- Aid road runners in making a comfortable and confident transition to the trails;
- Give beginner-to-intermediate trail runners the information they need to get more out of their adventures or racing, including filling in any specific proficiency gaps that a long-time trail runner may have, such as learning more about choosing gear, extreme conditions, wilderness safety, navigation skills, nutrition and hydration, or building a training plan.
To this end, we drew on our own decades of experience, countless conversations with fellow trail runners, and the expert advice of some of the world’s best trail runners, including Kilian Jornet, Emelie Forsberg, Anna Frost, Dylan Bowman, and Stephanie Howe.
