RYDERS STRIDER STARTING AT $50, RYDERSEYEWEAR.COM Protect your eyes from UV rays as well as errant branches on the trail. Many runners prefer lightweight, wraparound sunglasses. This model, made of a thermoplastic frame with anti-slip pads on the nose, is available in multiple lens options.


SUNGLASSES:


APPAREL: SALOMON START


SHORT AND TEE $38 (SHORTS) AND $35 (TEE), SALOMON.COM When you get serious about trail running, look to clothing made for running. I prefer a simple top like the Start Tee. It uses a breathable synthetic fabric and has mesh panels on the sides. The Start Short has an inner brief and a single small pocket on back.


GOLD CLASSIC $1.40 PER PACK (WHEN PURCHASED IN 24-PACK BOX); HONEYSTINGER.COM Easy-to-eat calories are necessary to keep the pace up. For years, I have relied on gel packets — rip off the top and squeeze the sticky, energy-rich goo into your mouth while striding on the trail. Made with honey, the Gold Classic gel packs offer a quick boost and a great, natural taste.


ENERGY FOOD: HONEY STINGER

HYDRATION: CAMELBAK DART $65, CAMELBAK.COM Shorter trail runs in moderate temps don’t require hydration packs. But if it’s hot or you’re going long distances, wear a pack or carry a bottle. The Dart is the kind of light, unencumbering pack popular with many runners. It holds a 1.5-liter water bladder with a drink tube, and it’s made of light materials that won’t weigh you down.
