In the colder parts of the Northern hemisphere, winter is here to stay! Navigating the ice, snow and wind can pose a challenge to outdoor athletes. With spring races on the horizon, preparation is key and it all starts with dressing to deal with the elements. Here are 10 wardrobe pieces essential to a strong training season!
A day of ice and snow. You’ll need this essential.
To maintain your natural gait on snow and ice, secure footing is key. To give your feet the grip they need, the yaktrax run attachment is highly recommended. Having tried winterized and trail running shoes, where the soles failed to provide proper traction, yaktrax truly gives your runners that ‘winter tire’ feel while remaining natural to run on.
Pro tip: Use on covered surfaces only. When the snow disappears, make sure to save these for next season.
