The introduction of higher prizes in Trail Run Races

The introduction of higher prizes in Trail Run Races must be analyzed from two differents points of view.
First on the technical aspects, because where there is money there are better athletes. Therefore, the level of racing will increase, forcing participants to train harder, longer and better, if they intend to finish the races in the first positions. Still, it will attract more sponsorships, media (TV, magazines, websites, newspapers) and this will lead to better organization of the races. Best kits, best checkpoints, more volunteers, more subscribers. Not to mention more tracks to run,  more races worldwide, minimizing the problem of few openings for athletes.
However, under the motivational aspects, the amateur athletes who are accustomed to winning these races can be discouraging, since you can not compete against professional athletes. It’s a great technique distance between these two categories of athletes.
The important thing in any situation, is to please everyone, because the trail runners, above all, love to be running regardless of placement of finishing the race. There must be respect for the environment and the next, keeping the trails clean, helping those in need and having fun.
Trail run is not only a kind of race, it is a lifestyle!Imagem
