There are many different ways to get in shape for hunting season or improve your fitness at any time of year. Few training methods can approximate the terrain encountered in the outdoors as well as trail running. But this specialized activity requires unique footwear. You wouldn’t want standard waffle trainers for trail work anymore than you’d lace on a pair of hiking boots for the weekend 10K race. If you are considering taking up trail running to boost your stamina in the field, consider these traits of a bona fide trail-running shoe.
