Trail Runner is looking for compelling ideas or off-beat story pitches about trails/foot travel in this time of loss, opportunity, and inflection. Tell me about the time you moved lightly through a landscape afoot and some encounter made you weep, made you dance, made you spit blood. Here for it.


Trail Runner is an authority on off-road running and the only magazine dedicated to the trail-running community. Its mission is to encourage runners of all ages and abilities to experience the outdoors and achieve a healthier lifestyle. Trail Runner seeks to advance the sport by actively encouraging diversity and expanding accessibility as well as advocating for issues relevant to public land use and the environment.
