 “The Columbia Trail Masters 2014” Episode VII

The 7th edition will take place at Keang Krachan, Petchburi, Thailand on July 6, 2014

The most popular and spectacular trail running event in Thailand!

The event will offer 4 distances: 50 km trail run, 25 km trail run, 10km trail run and 3 km fun run/walk for children and families

Why trail running?

In today’s fast paced lifestyle, both Eco-Friendly and Outdoor activities are becoming increasingly popular worldwide.  Running events have boomed in the last seven years in Thailand- a vast array of people are now seeking the appeal of nature and thrill of the great outdoors. Ground-breaking, Trail running is a prime example, offering just that, explaining its fast growing trend. It integrates both physical and mental endurance- all in the spirit of self fulfillment and adventure.

 

When people think of running, they most often picture running on paved roads or on a track. However, the majority of runners opt to run on hiking trails in natural settings. Trail running does this through combining the outstanding beauty of natural sceneries experienced when hiking with the physical challenges of running. If you are the type of person who enjoys immersing themselves in the splendors which Mother Nature has on offer, then trail running is perfect for you.

 

In addition to the regular benefits which come with running- such as improved fitness level and potential weight loss- trail running is also a lot gentler on the joints; contrasting to running on hard surfaces, such as pavements and concrete, which can be harsh on the bones and joints, making it ideal for people who suffer from certain physical limitations varying from shin splints to knee problems.

•          A 50km Trail run (2x 25km loop)

The Events
