Looking for new running shoes?
Trail running doesn’t necessarily mean running high up in the mountains. The term generally covers running in the great outdoors. Unlike urban running in the city, trail running terrain is very different. It involves running over sticks and stones and sometimes even through mud or snow. For this reason, a trail running shoe must provide you with good ground contact and stability so that you can react faster to changes in the terrain. Additional protection, such as reinforced soles or toe caps, protect you from sharp rocks and make the running shoe very durable.
As the name suggests, road running is about running on the road. Runners usually cover a distance between 5 kilometres and 42.5 kilometres. The largest running events take place on the road and running on the road is the most common type of running style. For road runners, there’s a high risk of injury due to the hard impact and heavy load. That’s why running shoes have a reinforced cushion to reduce the impact of each step.
My job at Galaxus allows me to live my passion for sports at work and means I'm always up to date with the latest sports trends. I can't wait to see which new inventions are about to stir up the world of sports. My biggest sporting challenge so far has been climbing Chachani volcano (6075 m) in Peru. I spend a large part of my leisure time on football pitches and ski slopes.
