An in-depth review of the STABILicers Sport winter traction device.
Every tourney needs a loser and iRunFar’s traction device throw down has one – the Kako Ice Trekker Ultra [Product discontinued]. The Ice Trekker Ultra did provide additional traction on ice, but its three competitors clearly outclassed it more or less across the board. In a crowded field of able competitors, leave the Kako’s debut […]
This past Friday, after 14 months of waiting, I finally got the chance to try the Kahtoola MICROspikes [iRF MICROspike preview]… and that’s not all. When I traveled north to visit my parents for the holidays, I threw three pairs of winter traction devices into my car just in case there was snow to be […]
Happy holidays everyone! Before we shut down iRunFar headquarters and head up to New Jersey for some sweet trail running (no, really) we’re psyched to share an interview with you. Below the fold is a video interview of iRunFar Runner-in-Chief, Bryon Powell, conducted by the guys over at Flatland Ultra, Travis Liles and Michael Green. […]
An in-depth comparison of energy gels.
“How to Run Trails!” That’s about as ambitious a post title as you’ll ever see here at iRunFar… but today we share resources from some masters of the sport that we’ve collected over the past few months. While we could throw in our two cents on how to run trails (and likely will), it would […]
With the holidays upon us, iRunFar.com and Clif Bar teamed up to spread joy to runners around the country. If you were one of the first 25 U.S. residents to leave a comment noting your favorite flavor of Clif Shot Bloks (or why you’d like to try Shot Bloks) and we’ll be sending you two […]
What happens when you combine an environmentally-conscious running blog, an overworked editor, and the holidays – a post about GreenLaces! GreenLaces is simple, yet commendable environmental commitment program in which you (or someone else) makes a promise to the planet, donates $5 for a pair of green laces, and then wear a pair of green […]
If you hang around running stores, outdoor retailers, or sporting goods stores nearly as much as we do, then you’ve probably noticed Gu Roctane along side the other energy gels over the past few months. You’ve also likely noticed that it’s between 50% and 100% more expensive than the competition. As any personal insight we […]
While you shouldn’t except a greeting card from iRunFar this holiday season, we’d like to introduce you to Far Gone Greetings and its line of running-related greeting cards. This impressively large selection of humorous cards were created by a runner who just launched Far Gone last month. Yes, many of them are groaners (see the […]
Do you sardine? We do! While iRunFar.com is generally a meat-free publication, there are times when training or racing and available non-meat protein sources don’t mesh. In such situations, we hope to have a tin of BELA-Olhão sardines at the ready. When I came up a bit short on protein at the TransRockies Run, I […]
Here at iRunFar headquarters we spent this snowy night compiling entries from last week’s Black Friday Giveaway. Well, we’ve run our random number generator (saved some trees) and picked the winners. Check below to see if you are one of the lucky ones. If so, please send us or email us your address and we’ll […]
During a run commute sometime last autumn I found myself wondering, “What is a trail?” Those of you who are fortunate (read as smart) to live out in the hinter lands might confine “trail” to mean a narrow dirt, rock, or grass path in a natural environment and, perhaps if you are generous, you might […]
Here at iRunFar.com we’ve been hearing more and more Lululemon Athletica running apparel. We’ve seen it on roommates, transcontinental enviro-charity runners, and fellow running club members. One of those fellow club members, Elyse Braner, enthusiastically uses Lululemon apparel on her runs and has graciously provided iRunFar with its second guest review of women’s running apparel. […]
Welcome back to the final 2008 edition of This Week In Running. With the holiday season upon us, and with TWIR set to take its winter break, today we take a sneak peek at a few of the races set to take place in December 2008. We begin with the 2008 North Face Endurance Challenge […]
