Hi!! Welcome to Moogen Running, part information point, discussion forum, running group and pretty much anything else you can think of related to Trail Running.

I’ve lived, and run, in a bunch of places but now call Frankfurt home, and spend my time enjoying and exploring the trails of Frankfurt and the nearby Taunus Mountain range.  But hey, that’s not the end of it, I pretty much look to run on trails anywhere and everywhere I go!!!

Why Trail Running?

My love of Trail Running is all wrapped up in two things, firstly in the name of this site – Moogen – it’s the Japanese word for Limitless, (using the kanji 無限) and that’s how I feel when I’m out on the trails, just me and the power in my own legs, able to go anywhere without limits. The second point is all to do with how I feel when I’m  this quote from Walden;

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I come to die, discover that I had not lived”

If you want to head out on a group run, get some information on the trails or products on the site… or just want a chat, drop a comment below…. and until then Happy Trails!!

  1. Hello, I am a french man arrived in Frankfurt since 4 weeks. I am looking for a trailrunning group/community in the area of frankfurt, have you already heard about that ?
    Many thanks.

    • Hi!! Sorry for the delayed response!! First of all welcome to Frankfurt! There are a couple of small groups in the area but it really depends what sort of level of running you are looking for – what sort of distance runs do you typically go for? – many of the groups limit their runs to 5-10KM runs which is a little bit short for what I am interested in. I go on fairly regular runs of 15-25K in the area and invite as many people as I can along… sometimes it’s a group, sometimes it’s just me and the trails! Let me know what you’re interested in…
