The Shawka Trail is relatively easy and it doesn't require special equipment however there is a list of things that are recommended to take with you. Our coach will provide you with this list.
The trail isn't hard but it's not for complete beginners in running. The length of the track is 10 kilometers and we will gain about 400 meters altitude. Since it's running and not hiking we will run some part of the trail (about 30%), where it's flat and easy to run. The workout will be no longer than 2.5 hours.
Trail running shoes with good traction, stability, and protection are highly recommended for running in mountainous terrain. If you don't have them, for the first time, you can use regular running shoes.
