At Trail Running Scotland we understand the importance of using the right equipment. We value good design, quality and value for money. We have teamed up with some key brands who we believe are the best at what they do. These partnerships allow us to offer exclusive discounts to everyone who comes on a course with us.
There is no doubt that the Lake District base of Inov-8 has had a huge impact on their designs, the grippiest shoes for the slippiest mud in the world!
We have run in a lot of different shoes over the years, but consistently come back to Inov-8 for grip and quality. Likewise we like their clothing ranges and find the water-poofs actually work!
Inspired by nature and the rugged landscape of the Pentland Hills just outside Edinburgh, our Moggans socks are made to withstand the demands of the notorious Scottish and UK climate from a sustainable, superfine Merino wool next-to the skin and a recycled polyamide structure. The result is a sock that provides all day comfort while tough enough to endure whatever the weather throws at you; mile-after-mile, day-after-day.
Moggans offer high-quality, sustainable performance products, made using recycled or natural yarns. Manufactured in Europe, our socks are designed and tested in Scotland to meet the demands of any amateur athlete, from walkers and runners to golfers and cyclists.
Silva are universally accepted as the leading brand is compasses for the hills. Their Swedish heritage is closely linked to competitive orienteering, meaning their range includes several compasses specifically designed for runners. Silva have supplied us with a large supply of high quality compasses that we use on our navigation courses.
From their origins in orienteering Harvey maps have made high quality maps for outdoor recreation. The design of their maps is focussed on making the information clear and simple, making navigation as easy as it can be. All of our navigation courses use custom printed Harvey maps.
