RUNNING With Poles

Run technical trails with poles

Stay focused on technical trails

Running poles are often used by ultra runners to provide stability and support on rugged terrain. However, more adventure runners and trail runners have started to incorporate running poles into their gear, especially when running on technical trails. Here are some 5 reasons why using running poles can be great for trail running:

1. Better balance

Running poles help you maintain better balance on technical terrain, such as rocky, uneven, or steep trails. They give you an additional point of contact with the ground, reducing the risk of slipping or losing your footing.

2. Increased speed

By using running poles, you can move forward more efficiently, especially when running uphill. They allow you to use your upper body muscles to assist your lower body muscles, giving you an extra boost of power and speed.

3. Reduced strain

Running poles help to distribute the load more evenly across your entire body, reducing the strain on your legs and feet. This can be especially helpful during long runs or races.

4. Improved posture

Using running poles encourages you to maintain good posture, keeping your spine straight and your shoulders relaxed. This can reduce the risk of developing neck, shoulder, or back pain over time.

5. Injury prevention

By reducing the impact on your joints, running poles can help prevent injuries such as knee pain, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis. They also provide additional support for your ankles and knees, which can be especially helpful when running downhill.
