I'm a hard core trail runner. Love running in the mountains.... however, can't do that all the time so run on urban paths and trails for training. I'm fortunate I live in a town where we have lots of running paths.
I run on a range of trails ranging from very tame urban paths to very rocky mountain trails. I have different shoes for the different types of terrain. I have tried a number of different trail runners but my favorite by far are Salomon (I have a w...
Dave M I have to agree with Steve S, I much prefer the softer surface of trail running. With the warm weather, the trails are beginning to dry up here, did a 55 minute run this afternoon.
I prefer trails but end up running a popular loop after work with friends that includes some man-made surfaces. I really feel the difference in my legs, feet, and shins when I'm off the trail. The trail is much more comfortable for me.
I don't have to deal with snow luckily! But as a slightly unrelated update my old Nikes I used for road runs were starting to get a bit worn, and I decided to go a bit lighter for road runs too. I tossed up between Inov8 and NewBalance Minimus roa...

I have also been reading a book on running technique and gait analysis, and found that I was touching down too far ahead of my body, which lead to a bit of a heel strike. I've brought it back a bit and run with a fairly neutral strike now and have...
I just noticed that I was in no trail running tribe... I am currently doing only road competitions... while my training is in a great part trail. Unfortunately in my little and flat country (Holland) it is a bit difficult to find places...
Well in the end I wasn't quite game to buy online without trying them, so I eventually found the Merrell Trail Gloves in a local shop. They did seem very narrow and squeezed the centre of my foot fairly tight. It took a bit of pulling to get the w...
Rose O answered the question What is your favorite shoe for hitting the trails?
Solomon XTR are my shoes of choice for trail running. Other shoes I find have a tendency to not hold up as well to the daily challenges I take my foot wear through. I find them sturdy and fairly lightweight as well. T...
