MULTI-DAY REQUIREMENTS

ABILITY

Experience running in variable terrain is important. However, if you’re used to running on roads and flat paths, you can still have a blast in the mountains. You will find it beneficial to warm up your legs, feet, and ankles for your trail running adventure by strengthening them with some basic strength exercises. We will be going over specific techniques before our outing, but the more prepared you are, the more fun you’ll have!

FITNESS

Having endurance and agility is key when running in variable terrain; and having ‘mountain legs’ is a bonus! Our multi-day trips are designed with flexibility in mind to suit your abilities and will be catered to your fitness level. We guide tours that stay entirely in mellow terrain as well as tours with 1000m+ elevation gain, and we love them all the same!

EQUIPMENT

Trail running is meant to be light and long, where you pack smart in order to be as efficient and safe as possible. You will need shoes with an excellent tread and the ankle support you require. Additionally, you will need ample nutrition and water, an extra change of clothes (including thin gloves and a hat), sun-cream, and a light rain jacket. Light hiking poles are also recommended as they are guaranteed to ease your troubles on the climbs and the descents! See our detailed equipment list for more information!
