Running hills efficiently is one of the most important (and challenging) trail running skills. Actually, it's a combination of several different skills: you need to master both ascending and descending, learn when walking is best, improve your balance and spacial awareness, as well as your overall strength if you want to excel in hilly or mountainous races.
If you want to run hills with the least effort (and who doesn't?) then developing the correct techniques during training are a must.
