WELCOME TO
HOW TO TRAIL RUN

Trail running is often lauded for its simplicity: just grab your shoes and go. But there's also a lot to learn.

What gear to use?
How to properly fuel and hydrate?
How to tackle technical terrain?
How to handle safety and navigation in the mountains?

How to Trail Run is Trail Runner's answer to these questions, and more. This special section of our website is designed as a resource for new and experienced trail runners alike, whether you're brushing up on technique or gathering the tools to get out on the trails for the first time.
