Choosing a Training Partner

Running solo certainly has its perks. Your pace, your route, zero distractions and no one to moan if you get a little lost. But for the long haul, adventures are generally best shared. The transition from free solo to committed trail duo is not something that should be undertaken without careful consideration, and a checklist of key training partner characteristics to bear in mind.

Cape Summer Trail Series 2019

It’s here! And if you haven’t thrown your hat in the ring yet, here are some really good reasons to get on it.

Your Wild Year

Yes, it’s time. Time to declutter, unfollow, let go and simplify. Time to discard that which does not serve you, and be true to the calling of your heart. Time for the New Year’s resolutions to be less about counting calories or kg and more about counting blessings and opportunities for growth.

Running on a Budget

Hello January, and a generally strained economy. Plenty of us are looking at the nice-to-haves in our lives and trimming things down a little. But running is a necessity, right? It is where so many of us
find our life balance, make new friends and feel continued joy.

So, how to keep our favourite sport alive and well in 2019, without melting the credit card?

Festive Season Fitness

Holiday season is definitely time for less structured training. Exploration should be your driving force for getting out on the trails, and hill repeats are best postponed until mid-January. But it’s also not ideal to throw all the hard work out with the left over glazed ham.

Here are our tips to keep it tidy during silly season.

Beach Running Tips

Wildcoast WildrunTime for sandy feet and salty running kit! Nothing quite like a beach run with the sun rising over the sea, nothing but a few oyster catchers calling to each other, and a lazy gull or two circling above. But there are some risks attached to a quick shift to sand if your feet are more accustomed to the firmer of terra firma options.
