The Atlanta Trail Running group is for runners throughout the Metro Atlanta area who like to run trails. Come Trail run with us! We run on the dirt and in the trees. Why? Trail running is...FUN, less impact on the body than running on pavement, utilizes more muscles groups so you get stronger, balance and agility improves, mentally stimulating, a great way to connect with nature, and you're having so much fun you want to keep running! Running is also a lot easier to run when running with others! Metro Atlanta and North Georgia is a Trail Runner's heaven with some great trails! Metro Atlanta has 50+ trails! Trail Running is different from road running. Running on dirt is much kinder on the joints.
