My Trail Running Experience

I started to participate to Trail Running events and competitions in 2012. Since then, I took part to more than 150 races, located in seven different European countries and different Italian regions. In the last four years, I started to challenge myself in over-100 km races, even if they are not a “must do” in my running philosophy.

In addition to data from official competitions, I usually track my trainings with different Apps and with the “old fashion” approach made of notebooks and excel sheets. With this information, at the end of the year, I usually generate a summary of my statistics: https://www.emigrantrailer.com/?cat=18
