Nick Truax, the manager and buyer of ProLite Gear’s mountain running category is gearing up for the Old Gabe 50k in 2 months. “ I am fortunate enough to live in Bozeman, Montana where there is great access to mountain trails, but the rapidly changing conditions in the mountains make preparedness key for every run. Throughout the year, I find trails still packed with snow, and the weather can go from sunny to blustery in a matter of minutes.”
Following are Nick’s top 3 gear categories to keep him prepared for his mountain training runs:
Running Hydration: Stay hydrated before, during and after your run
Trail Footwear: Worn-out or ill-fitting shoes are a leading cause of injury
Windshirts: Be prepared for weather changes during long runs
“Mountain Running is a very liberating experience and one of my favorite outdoor activities” says Nick. “The freedom of fast, efficient movement in the mountains is nearly unparalleled with mountain trail running."
