You absolutely, positively must have a good pair of running shoes and a decent sports bra. We also recommend wearing a special two-layer running socks that help prevent blisters by wicking away moisture.

Trail running is a cross between hiking and road running, and appeals to people for a variety of reasons. For some, hiking doesn't carry enough cardio oomph; others find road running unbearably tedious. Trail running is defined as running off paved roads; it could be jogging up a mountain, running on a dirt road or scurrying over rocks and roots.
It's also one of the more accessible activities - all you really need is a good pair of shoes and a place to run...no fancy equipment or special skills.
