Crowds
We welcome all supporters. At each festival there will be an event village where people can find out more about trail running, enjoy food or drink and watch the participants run or get involved in a workshop. Your supporters can enter the festival free of charge.
Backpack
One of the most important pieces of kit a trail runner will need to consider is their shoes. Trail running requires a specific trail shoe that can grip to the terrain and provide traction to help you move more sure-footedly over dirt, mud, roots and gravel with the necessary stability. Trail shoes provide protection around the toe area and on the sole of the shoe meaning that runners are shielded from uneven terrain, branches and rocks, the durable upper materials withstand abrasion and tears.
Trail running is all about making sure you're comfortable with whatever the weather conditions and terrain throw at you. The best bet is to come with a variety of gear and make an educated choice on the day.
