3 Reasons To Run Outside

Celebrate Global Running Day by going for a trail run, then sign up for the Fast Bananas Trail Race at Serenbe!

If you were looking for a mid-week holiday, today is Global Running Day - an annual celebration of running that focuses on motivating people to get moving and to have fun doing so. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you choose to celebrate this day, just that you get active and encourage others to join you. How are we celebrating? By getting our training plan in motion for the Fast Bananas Trail Race at Serenbe, coming up in November 2023!

Here are 3 reasons you should run with us:

1. Serenbe provides the perfect atmosphere for such a holiday with the intricate and plentiful 15+ miles of trails that meander throughout the community. You can run on your own, or get a training group together. You’ll see forest, meadows, lakes and waterfalls, all on one run in the woods.

2. Trail Running > Road Running. Of course, both are good for in some ways and we encourage ALL EXERCISE. But, trails are softer on your joints, so trail runners experience fewer injuries and increased strength and agility, plus you burn more calories. Training on trails may even make you faster in the long…run! (pun intended). Luckily, Serenbe has plenty of trails for you to try out.

3. Running Outside is ALWAYS better. We already know running is healthy, and when you run outside it gets even better. Breathe in fresh air, take in the scenic views and enjoy the physiological benefits of being in nature - lower stress levels, an immune system boost, enhanced creativity and restored focus.

Whether this holiday sparks the aspiring running junkie in you, or you already consider yourself an avid runner, don’t forget to sign up for the Fast Bananas Trail Race at Serenbe on November 11, 2023.
