Fact: Trail running is the new black.
Just like mountain biking rode out of nowhere and knocked the wheels from under road cycling, trail running is the antidote to running on crowded, often hazardous roads, and a breath of fresh air for anyone who has been a runner for any length of time.
It’s booming – and it’s only going to get bigger.
TRAIL magazine strives to both reflect this and innovate new trends within trail running. We work hard, constantly and honestly, to bring you the best balance possible between training tips, event previews, race reviews, people interviews and equipment features.
TRAIL magazine’s second issue is 100 pages thick and is packed with training tips, news and product reviews. Expert guest writers include desert and stage running queen Mimi Anderson, lifestyle coach Chantel Nienaber and trail racer Leo Rust, who sings the praises of Cape Town’s Lion’s Head.
Photographic contributors include Kelvin Trautman, Craig Kolesky and Jacques Marais.
The second issue of TRAIL magazine, South Africa’s only print and digital publication dedicated to the booming sport of trail running, hit shelves on 10 April 2012.
The striking image of cover athlete Jock Green in a fern forest at Three Cranes Challenge outside Karkloof in KwaZulu-Natal was shot by Kelvin Trautman.
