Top Trail Running Tips for Beginners
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.
