As a full time cyclist I’m looking for tips to train for a Trail Running race.
I just finishing training for a 120km MTB race, expect it will take me around 8 hours. My next goal will be a trail running race in February 2020. This race is not an A event, my wife is a marathon runner and thought this type of event would be nice to do together, and would like to keep cycling as my priority. The race is 35km long with 1,500 meters of climbing a volcanic jungle. I expect the actual running to be around half of the distance, given how steep the terrain is. Looking at past finishing times I would expect it will take me around 7 hours.
Any tips are welcomed on how to make the transition and mix cycling with trail running.
