MEC Ambassador picks for trail running gear

Part of what makes trail running so amazing is its simplicity. You don’t need much gear to enjoy the fresh air and forests, just some grippy shoes and a few key layers.

To help you get set for your season of trail running (and maybe even some trail races), here are some top picks from our MEC Ambassadors Nick Elson and Kim Magnus.
