I’m Chris. Recreational trail runner and ultrarunner.  I’m not a professional.  Far from it.  I’m not even particularly fast.  But, I love the freedom of trail running, and it allows me time to enjoy the wonders of nature on a regular basis.

The running industry is rife with dubious claims.  Shoes that will make you run faster by talking to your phone.  Supplements that will help you recover faster.  Diets that will improve your endurance and performance.  The scientific evidence to support those claims is non-existent at best, and at worst, sponsored by the companies peddling the products.

With this site, I aim to sort out the science from the pseudoscience and hopefully create a repository of trail running resources, sensible analysis and comparisons of competing ideas.
