Trail Running Quotes – Ten Quotes to Inspire You to Explore

What Do Trail Running Quotes Do For Me?

For me, trail running quotes are those that either inspire me to get out there and explore and appreciate the trail or provide me that extra push I need when things get tough.

Motivational Quotes

I’m not a fan of motivational quotes in general, as they have been done to death and have therefore lost some of their value. In saying that, there are quotes out there that really resonate and give you that extra lift and purpose. These rare gems are priceless.

When it Means Something to You

Certain quotes will hold a higher value to different people depending on their circumstance, their history and what they are currently going through. When I stumble upon a quote that that hits a chord I try to keep hold of it. Whether that is taking a screenshot or writing it in my notes or even a mental note. Recalling these little snippets of inspiration at the right time can be what gives me that extra drive I needed, such as in a difficult point in a race.

  1. Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for these quotes, they are definitely motivational! My favourite would be “I run because I can…”

    Today I was out for 16km through the marshes, although I did make the mistake of wearing road shoes rather than trail shoes – oops!

    I will return for more inspiration soon, as I suspect my outdoor running in the UK will soon be curtailed as part of the fight against Corona Virus.


    1. Hi Lisa!
      I’m so glad to hear you got some motivation from these!
      Well done on the run, nice one! Certainly crazy and scary times right now. Our sacred right to head out on the trails will not ever be taken for granted again. Stay safe and thanks for your comment 🙂

  2. What a terrific selection of quotes. I´m a Neale Donald Walsch fan so its not surprising that I like the quote about life starting at the end of your comfort zone. But all of them are terrific, e.g. “go where you feel most alive”. “& into the Forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul”. Terrific site and highly motivational. I have bookmarked it for when I need a motivational quote. Have a great day and keep safe.

  3. Thanks for those inspirational quotes, I can definitely relate to some of them.
    My favourite one is about life beginning at the end of our comfort zone.
    If we don’t change something in our lives, if we don’t face our fears, it will always stay the same and we’ll end up stuck .
    Take care and stay safe xxx

    1. I absolutely agree, it is here where real change can happen in more ways than just the physical. Wishing you well in these troubling times and thank-you for your comment 🙂

  4. Awesome! I love motivational quotes. “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” . This one I have not heard. Although I am not a runner, I enjoyed your site. Vibrant and well planned.
    Thank you for the post.

  5. “There’s an uphill for every downhill, and a downhill for every uphill” It’s a challenge to get to the top but falling from the top downwards can be very easy. You are right there are those quotes that are motivational and revives your spirit especially when you feel down or lost. They somewhat ignite your inner light. Thanks for sharing
