Trail Run Rules and Tips

  • Trail Run

Some hints and tips for Two Oceans trailists!

  • Water – carry your own! Either a hydration pack or hip belt bottle holder.
  • The route is marked, but doing on route training is a good idea – maps are available on the website.
  • Trail running has obstacles such as rocks, roots, branches and bushes – concentrate!
  • Trail running times are often double for the same road running distance.
  • Be prepared for the weather on the day, e.g. sun hat and lotion, or wind breaker and warm kit.
  • If attempting to pass another runner on the single track, be polite.
  • We are in a nature reserve so no litter of any sort please.
  • Running in mountains takes you to remote areas.
  • Enjoy the journey and the views.
