M Trail, Bozeman
Scott Bischke
The most popular trail in Bozeman is the M trail. For my wife Kate and I, “running” the M loop takes about 50 minutes. We usually hike the pretty-much-straight-up-the-ridge-for-800-feet route. Once we reach the M, we take a break to catch our breath. Read more >>

It's the middle of summer in Montana: "hot" doesn't begin to describe what it can feel like on the trails this time of year. Luckily, apparel technology has reached the point where our clothes are actually making us cooler. Sounds gimmicky, but it's true. Read more >>

Saucony Peregrine 5
McCarthy, Chris
I’ve never been one to pontificate about a trail shoe. Hell, up until three years ago, I’d run in whatever was on the bargain table. The Peregrine from Saucony has changed all that. This trail shoe is the perfect combination of ruggedness and comfort. Read more >>

Through the fog they come, through the early morning mist: two hundred loping crusaders, steely-eyed and sweat-soaked, rushing forward like a herd of wild horses – side-stepping boulders, hurdling fallen logs, and propelling themselves, chests heaving, through the steep and rocky terrain.
