The official launch of Mendiak Trail Running took place in Puerto Madryn (Chubut). This first edition in “la más linda” will run on April 12, 2020.
The landscape of the sea and cliffs of the Patagonian city will allow runners to live a unique adventure. Runners will be offered the possibility to register to participate in the 10, 21 and 42 km route.
Mendiak is an adventure race originally from El Bolsón (Rio Negro). It started in 2014 with just 70 registered people and, over the years, managed to position itself. In 2017, he managed to bring together more than 600 enrollers and, in 2018, nearly 900 runners.
A few years ago, the race managed to be present in other parts of the country such as San Luis and obtained the ITRA (International Trail Running Association) certification . This is a validation of great interest for professionals and fans of this sport.
The Trail Running mode consists of running , competitively or recreational, on trails, footprints and rural roads . During the tour, you cross areas of hills, forests, rivers, beaches, among others. This is their main difference from track races, as not only do you travel a distance, but also different types of obstacles are crossed . Slopes and slopes make the journeys a more entertaining experience.
As they say, “ different types of race, different types of footwear .” Over the years, brands have dabbed and perfected in different models of sneakers offering a greater offer. However, when acquiring them for trail practice, some issues have to be considered.
In addition to running shoes used on the track, the soles of the trail shoes feature a special design to improve grip and traction on unstable terrain. The most recommended footwear is the one that presents the most irregularities on its sole.
Another important feature is the protection offered by footwear. Open ground tours require shoes with panels and reinforcements in their structure and tread.
