Readers can subscribe initially via the Pozible campaign HERE. **The special offer subscription period will only be available until October 24**  In taking up the inaugural quarterly print offer they will have the opportunity to take up a…

Trail Run Mag goes to print quarterly

IT’S COMING!  Yes, your favourite dirty magazine is finally going Back to the Future. We’re getting some flesh on our traditionally digital bones, and making the move to becoming a grown-up subscriber-based print magazine that will be delivered directly to your door. We are, after all, 21 editions old! Time to grow up! Sort of. So here’s the plan. We’ll launch in coming weeks (late September 2016), a Pozible campaign to rouse enough interest via your subscriptions to push the print button. You’ll have the…

Run Larapinta: a rollercoaster ride

TRM trail reporter, Nicki Letts, and her partner Mat head to the iconic Red Centre of Australia to take on the rough but rewarding ride that is Run Larapinta, a multi day running adventure along the eponymous trail.  “You’ve got to be kidding me!” My disbelief echoes around the towering red gorge walls as I watch my running partner, Mat, heave his tired legs up the vertical rocks. This cannot be the right way. For the past eight kilometres, we’ve been…

Trail Run Editorial: The Voice of Fear

‘Failure is not falling down, but refusing to get up’ – Chinese proverb. I’m scared. And that’s a good thing. It got me out on a blustery night to grind out hill repeats toward a midnight salvation. So what’s your motivation? I’m not talking about the ‘Big Why’, here. For me that is easy: I simply love to run through wild places. Simple and pure. It makes my soul – whatever that manifestation is – feel charged, along with all…

Theory of Relativity

FOR THE FIRST THIRD OF THE RUN, I FELT FINE. DANCING ON MY FEET LIKE A DANDY, IN FACT. THEN THE DISTANCE STARTED TO BITE. THERE’S A SEQUENCE IN THE DESCENT INTO RUN DELIRIUM. THE LEGS START TO FEEL HEAVY. THE ENERGY SAPS, LEAKING FROM THE BODY LIKE IT HAS BEEN SKEWERED IN FIFTY PLACES BY A RAGING BULL – ENOUGH SO YOU CAN’T PLUG THE LEAK. I WANT TO LAY DOWN BESIDE THE TRAIL AND GO TO SLEEP. They tell…

EDITORIAL: Technique of Ages

Technique is about the little things, but also about the big things, like keeping you in the game in the first place, says TRM Australia Editor, Chris Ord. [This is the AU Editor’s editorial from the recently released TRAIL RUN MAG #19, out now. Download for FREE here.] A general thirst for adventure led me to trail running. But technique has kept me in trail running. I was a generalist outdoorsman – expert at nothing, dabbler in everything. Trekking, paddling, mountain…

Blue Sky Dreams – History of Skyrunning

Skyrunning has firmly embedded itself into the Australian and New Zealand trail scene via events such as the Hillary and Mt Difficulty in New Zealand and Buller, Buffalo and the new Vertical K happening next weekend in Australia. While these races do an admirable job emulating their bigger-mountain cousins in the northern hemisphere, the epitome – not to mention the origins – of Skyrunning is found in Italy and within the hearts and minds of founders, Lauri van Houten and Marino Giacometti….

Editorial: Mix’n’match

This editorial appears in the latest edition of Trail Run Mag (Ed #18), downloadable for FREE here. You can also purchase a subscription on iTunes for your iPad/iPhone or Kindle Fire. Have you ever bought a new car, perhaps something slightly unusual, and all of a sudden that’s all you see on the roads?  Suddenly all you see are burgundy Toyota Tercels everywhere, like a Clone War of obscure imported All Wheel Drive station wagons? What about a new sport? …
