COUNTDOWN IS ON FOR TRAIL RUN WORLDS
The 2012 XTERRA Trail Run World Championship at Kualoa Ranch, Hawaii, is two weeks away, so if you have not registered yet, now is the time.
This year’s race is scheduled for December 2, and it will once again be held at the incomparable Kualoa Ranch. It is open to runners of all ages and all skill levels, from anywhere around the world.
Regardless of what kind of shape you are in, the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship will have a course for you. There are four to choose from: the 21-kilometer championship course, the 10K run, the 5K fun run, and the “Adventure Walk.”
The fastest runners on the 21K course will compete for a $10,000 prize purse. The top runners in every age group for the 21K, 10K and 5K will receive medals and prizes.
The trails at Kualoa Ranch are widely regarded as some of the most scenic – yet challenging – on the planet. The grounds of the ranch have been used as a backdrop for such blockbuster movies as Jurassic Park, Godzilla, Pearl Harbor and 50 First Dates.

TIPS FOR THE TRAIL - TAPERING FOR TRAIL RUN WORLDS
By Rachel Cieslewicz
The 2012 XTERRA Trail Run World Championship is just over two weeks away! The most intense training in preparation for your race should be complete. Tapering for key events is important; it allows your body to be fully recovered from many miles of running, and the resulting breakdown of tissues. When your body is given recovery from training, it builds itself back stronger than before. When done appropriately, you will have your best race ever. Many forget that there is more to tapering than just cutting back on mileage and intensity.
In order to achieve your ultimate form come race day, there are other key elements to rebuilding that are well worth the time commitment to your taper. There are three in my mind that contribute the greatest to rest, recovery and feeling fantastic. They are proper sleep, complete nutrition and a positive mind.
