Sponsors and Partners
Adventure Running Co. is happy to announce partnerships with companies supplying the best trail running gear and nutrition available. These companies will be providing gear for our guides and some product for our tours. Some of our partners will also be providing discounts on their products and other benefits to runners participating in our tours. The Adventure Running Co. will be providing a great opportunity for our partners and sponsors to test their gear and products in the field and provide them with the feedback necessary to help them constantly improve the quality of their products. We’ve chosen to work with these companies based on their product’s performance and dependability. If we didn’t think these were the best products out there for trail running, we wouldn’t be using them.
Altra shoes are designed by runners, for runners and you can tell! We've been running in Altra shoes for a while now and can honestly say they're the best trail shoes our guides have worn on the trail. From their zero drop footbed that encourages a natural running gait to their Footshape toe box, Altra shoes simply work for us! Zero blisters over hundreds of miles and you've got a shoe that we'll recommend to our runners in a heartbeat!
We've been using Ultimate Direction packs. bottles and handhelds for almost 20 years now! Ultimate Direction makes the best, most innovative and functional trail running packs on the market. We're really happy to be hauling our gear and water in the best packs out there! We know our runners will love these packs as well!
Honey Stinger was developed to take advantage of the superior source of carbohydrates and energy that natural honey provides. Plus, it tastes great! We’ve found that when other gels start to get “old” and the last thing you want is to suck another gel down at mile 90 of a 100 mile race, honey, with it’s natural flavor stays fresh and inviting. Honey Stinger makes great tasting gels, organic energy chews (mmmmmm...), protein bars, energy bars and their sensationally popular Waffles!
We've found over our many years of trail running that sock companies come and go and that, in particular, socks we used to wear and find to be nearly "indestructible" are no longer made with the same quality. That's where Fox River steps in. These socks have been produced since 1900 and are the most comfortable and highest quality socks we've ever worn on the trail. Socks really are a necessary piece of gear for a trail runner and in all of the miles we've run in Fox River socks, we've NEVER gotten a blister! Check out the new RunStrong line of socks inspired by Olympic gold medalist Billy Mills. Fox River will donate $1 for every pair of RunStrong socks sold to the Running Strong for American Indian Youth Foundation. It's time you checked out and picked up a pair (or several!) of Fox River socks as well!
Black Diamond makes the best headlamps for runners available today. We particularly like their Spot headlamp which provides incredible brightness and light weight. Black Diamond is constantly working on improving their headlamps for trail runners and will be releasing new models in the near future.
