Talking "trail running" conjures up images of far off places, empty spaces, and a heap of effort and resources just to get to the trailhead. Not a regular reality for most, but a super soul recharger when one can manage a trip into the outer wilds.
Luckily, trail running can be closer to home, if we step outside our normal out-and-back road running routes. Like rumbling down a well-worn footpath in a local park or preservation area. Or just running the dirt or gravel-covered path alongside the paved ones in your neighborhood. (It ain't Broken Arrow, but you'll have a happy heart and be home for dinner.)
And when it comes to picking the best gear for all those unpaved adventures, we turn to our resident trail expert and cloud collector, Collier Lawrence.
