The ultimate trail running packing list: what to bring with you 

You may be thinking: why a packing list for trailrunning? Trailrunning is different from running on paved roads for many reasons. Sometimes you run through mud, then you plow through bushes, and sometimes it rains while hours later it’s dark and warm. You guessed it: trail running requires a special packing list. In this guide to trail running gear, Luciano shares his essential trail running packing list. What is indispensable, what absolutely goes in his bag and what shouldn’t you bring? 

There are so many different types of terrain to trailrun on. That makes trail running super fun, but definitely challenging. One minute you can be running on a nice smooth trail. But that nice path can turn into a rocky trail in no time and with mud it can even get very slippery. So reason to be well prepared for your trail run.
