Tips for Trail Running in Steamboat Springs

Trail running is a great way to get exercise and allows you to explore new areas in a hurry. There are countless places to go trail running in Steamboat Springs, so you will never run out of options. Prior to running on a trail, however, it is a good idea to consider the following tips.


Choosing a Trail

Before embarking on a run, scout a few different trails. Make sure that each trail that you have selected is fit for running, so that you don’t end up getting over your head. You should also make sure that the trail’s level of difficulty is in line with your current fitness level. If you are just beginning, go with a flat, even trail. Once you have been trail running in Steamboat Springs for a while, you can choose a more challenging option.


Running Tips

Run with a straight back, as this relieves any pressure that would be on your spine. It also helps you to breath better, since your lungs will be opened up. When running uphill, shorten your stride to give yourself more control. You can also lean forward slightly to help with your balance.


Finding a Shoe

Safety should be your top priority, so finding a good shoe is definitely important Steamboat Shoe Market has a wide selection of trail running shoes for people with all different foot types, making them a great option. Give them a call at 970-871-8566 to see what types of trail running shoes they currently have in stock.
