9 x Running in the autumn

You already know that running is good for your health, but it’s also very enjoyable, certainly on the Coast.

  • You discover nice coastal places, which you might otherwise never see.
  • You do it when it suits you. Early in the morning at sunrise on the sea? Or do you prefer the evening with a setting sun? The choice is yours!
  • Just clear your head and run off all your worries, frustrations, and stress.

Did you know there are several nice races and events on the Coast in the autumn? It’s never too late to start, so get your running shoes on and start training!
