The Beginner’s Guide to Off-Road Running


Sometimes, running on the road can feel a tad bit repetitive and boring — even running the same route but the other way around. Living in a luxury home in Laguna or a Luxury house and lot in Santa Rosa can give you the entire subdivision to run in, but in most cases you have run every street already. If these are the case then off-road running is just for you. What makes off-road running much better for your case is that there is quite the number of running trails in Laguna near Brittany Corporation. The best thing about running off-road is that you can bring your friends along or even your active companion.

Before Starting 

You may be experienced running on the road or within Brittany Santa Rosa, but running off-road is on a different level. So before you set foot in any running trails in Laguna, do keep these things in mind first. Do try the easier and shorter trails first before heading into the bigger and longer trails; compared to the road, sometimes you cannot see what is ahead of you in the trail. Living in a house and lot near Nuvali or even within Brittany Corporation, runner’s really have the road for themselves. A little respect for others and for the trail you will be running in can come a long way. Finally, navigation. Before heading out to any trail make sure that your GPS is working and that you have informed someone as to where you are going — in the worst case your GPS fails. With all of this out of the way, do make sure to take your time to take in the beauty of the trails you are running in.

Compared to the road, there are no shops or vehicles nearby so investing in proper gear is a very good idea. You may need to get a small bag which can contain an extra shirt and a bottle of water. Having a first aid kit would also come in handy should the situation arise(but let us hope that you would not need to use it). Aside from just the gear, it is important to know about the route you are taking so that you can get through that trail without a hitch.
