    Trail running VS Road Running

    Trail running VS Road Running , What’s tougher on your body, the road or the trails?  Why after running a 21km on the road it feels like my hips are breaking and my knees are squeaky but when I do a 24Km on trail my body is not nearly as wiped out afterwards? Yet I’ve heard people say Trail running is harder on your body and joints than road running? This is a question that I regularly thought about in my running lifespan.
