What to Wear

As with road running, outfit yourself for whatever weather you'll be trekking in, says Hatfield. More than anything, you are dressing for the elements. For hot days, a pair of synthetic shorts and a sweat-wicking T-shirt will keep you cool. If you're in the woods you may not have to worry about the sun, but for any open areas make sure to bring a hat with you. For cooler weather, invest in an ultra light shell, glove liners, and a lightweight cap to help protect you from wind and give you some added warmth.

Aside from comfortable clothing, your must-have accessory for any runs over 45 minutes should be water, Hatfield says. If you know you're going to be out for a few hours grab some energy bars, too.

Iżve used man made and game trails for years while hunting, now I am hooked on running them. Training only 3 months , my first 2013 race was the Mac Forest 50k, next will be a local 30k Run For The Hills, Siskiyou Out Back 50k, and the flagline 50k at the end of the summer. Anyone in Oregon should look up There are some great runs to sign up for here. I hope this article sparks some interest in any road runners who read it, so give the trails a try.
