Running and skating

Share

Runners and skaters transform the paths off their doorstep into a very personal fitness studio. The speed is in your own hands: from comfortable walking to a demanding trail run. And you don't need much equipment either: running shoes, skates, poles, helmet – off you go!

The four disciplines in which running and skating on outdooractive.com is divided are incredibly diverse.

There is Nordic Walking, a trend sport for everyone who likes to move and keep fit in a gentle way. Jogging is the best way to train stamina and endurance and can be practiced almost anywhere with minimal equipment.

Trail Running is something for the demanding athletes among you: The term refers to jogging off the beaten track – but it's up to you whether you want to move around on a flat meadow or run across the Alps. The last discipline is Inline Skating, which became popular in the 1990s and is still more than just summer training for ice hockey players and cross-country skiers.
