Hill running can be a challenge even for the most experienced of runners. Many runners dread it especially as running a hilly course can be both physically and mentally draining. By incorporating the appropriate techniques needed for hill running into your training programme, it ensures that you are prepared for any obstacle that a race course throws at you.
There are multiple benefits for incorporating hills into your regular training routine regardless of your running experience. Not only does it improve your overall running form and muscular strength but it also helps you to improve your range of motion making you an overall more efficient runner regardless of the course.
Uphill and downhill running requires a different running technique and form than that of flat ground. Learning how to tackle the uphill and downhill slopes of a hill correctly will act as a great benefit to your running performance by increasing your strength and endurance, while reducing the risk of an injury.
