Over the last few months we have held three different camps for aspiring The North Face 100km and 50km athletes. Held at the Leura Waldorf, these camps have exposed our athletes to the race course and key principles surrounding nutrition, hydration, training, tapering, mandatory gear and checkpoint techniques. We also seem to have exposed our athletes to the joys of running in the rain and how to efficiently remove leeches from trail running shoes. Our secret... carry a salt shaker on race day!
Runner’s World Magazine has awarded The North Face's new Ultra Trail running shoe the 2014 Best Debut Award.
After nearly two years in development, we are excited to announce our global Responsible Down Standard (RDS) is complete.
