2013 Running Gear Guide
Running Gear Guide
In the early spring of 2013, when most of us were swooshing around the slopes and eking every last bit of fun and adventure from the snowy months, the Active Junky Team was busy hitting the pavement. Our team of gear testers has been getting down and dirty with new running gear from top brands. Our goal? To produce valuable reviews and commentary for our run gear guide- our definitive running guide and the essential place to research, discover and stock up on all your spring/summer running needs. From minimalist shoes to tights to socks we want to get you ready for the summer trails through the 2013 run gear guide.
We've searched out some of the best new running products to create this run gear guide. We worked with brands like New Balance, Salomon, Merrell, Mammut, Keen and more to put their products in the harshest tests we could muster. Our testers hit the trails, the mountains, the scrambles and the streets to put the running industry's newest gear in the hot seat to create this comprehensive run gear guide. With testers of all skill sets and abilities, we curate a selective mix of tested shoes and running gear for everyone from the distance runner to the trail jogger.
Need a distance shoe that can actually go the distance? We've got that in the run gear guide. Need socks that wouldn't get soaking wet and weight you down in 100 degree weather? We've got that. Jackets for the rain, short-shorts for the sun and every hydration pack you can think of. From the super technical ultra-runner to the weekend warrior who crunches out a few miles, our running gear guide will cover every aspect of your spring/summer running gear experience.
