Wood You Rather is a different kind of trail race, where racers get to choose how to complete the course. The race has no pre-set course. Instead, racers receive a map at the start of the race, with nine checkpoints highlighted. Runners have two-and-a-half hours to get as many as they can, decide where they will run to get to each of the checkpoints, and and make it back to the finish line.
It's always easier to train when you've got something in mind train for. Find an upcoming running event in your area and sign up, it's as easy as that. Train each week in preparation for the big day and then go out and have fun with it. You will have runners at all different levels of running abilities. You'll have semi pro runners right down to absolute beginners. Running is for everyone when you realise that the only person you're competing with is yourself - to gradually make those improvements and gains. Good luck on your journey.
