Getting out on the trails (especially while kitted in comfortable The North Face apparel) is a great way to get in touch with nature, to breathe some fresh air, to release some tension, relieve stress and to get your heart rate up. Boosting fitness and cardiovascular health, improving mental wellbeing, keeping your mind sharp and strengthening relationships – Trail Running offers all kinds of wonderful benefits.
The North Face asked some athletes what Trail Running meant to them and Jennifer Lichter said that “Running is like meditation. Only faster” and Zach Miller believes that “You have to run with nature, not against it”, which drives home the realisation of what trail running means to athletes, and reminds us that everyone runs for different reasons, which is one of the wonderful things about Trail Running.
Another great thing is that trails are for everyone, from trail running athletes looking to capture their next FKT (fastest known time), seasoned hikers and climbers looking to conquer the next challenge, to weekend adventurers taking some time out, and first-time hikers looking to explore. Discover Your Trail aims to inspire all.
The North Face Trail Running collection honours trail runners at their best. The innovative technology and deeply considered gear that make up The North Face Trail Running ranges, are inspired by the some of the most iconic trails that continue to inspire The North Face athletes. The Run Wind Jackets, Sunriser running apparel and the incredible VECTIV™ Footwear range, bring a sense of confidence and excitement, while still allowing you to fully experience the beauty and serenity of trail running.
The North Face’s VECTIV™ tagline is “Power Further” and every runner understands why the moment they put on a pair of these Trail Running shoes. VECTIV™technology turns energy into momentum to propel you forward. The 3D Plate and Rocker Midsole combine to reduce impact by 10%, with no compromise on energy efficiency. The Rocker Midsole optimises foot strike and forward momentum, while the 3D Plate provides propulsion and stability, and the SurfaceCTRL™ Grip Outsole surefooted confidence on any terrain.
The North Face’s VECTIV™footwear technology effortlessly combines stability, traction and enhanced cushioning for overall comfort, support and solid confidence in each stride.
The Discover Your Trail campaign from The North Face focuses on what benefits there are to Trail Running, and what Trail Running means to individual runners, of all abilities and experience levels, and encourages all to get out there and #NeverStopExploring the trails.
