BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Trail running is deeply embedded in our DNA as a brand. There is something magical about the connection between runner and dirt that propels us forward.


We explore the beauty of our trails and appreciate the magnificent landscape over which they lead. Even as careful and respectful trail runners, we often unintentionally leave a footprint as we go. A forgotten gel packet or an overlooked food wrapper gets left behind. We’re so engrossed in our surroundings, we drop something without realizing. Every now and then we notice evidence of runners who have preceded us on the trails.


What if we took it upon ourselves to protect the nature we love so much by stashing more trash? Imagine the impact you and I could make if we picked up that piece of trash we notice on the run instead of ignoring it? What if we ALL did this? Think of the collective impact we would make.

Here’s our challenge to you: help us stash that trash on the trails (and roads). Encourage your friends to do the same. Help spread the word by using #StashThatTrash As one person it may not feel like much. As a community, we can create a significant impact. It starts with one piece of trash and it grows from there. What are you waiting for?



Start collecting and stash-that-trash!
