Understanding what gear to take, and what to leave behind, is critical for getting the most out of a trail running experience. To be able to keep running for a long time, you obviously don’t want to carry much, but you do need some essentials. What we show here is minimal gear for a two to three day summer tour with good weather forecast. Some personal items (like camera, poles, etc.) may be missing since we tried to focus on the bare minimum. These items do not include what you wear when you start (shoes, shirt, shorts, sun hat, sunglasses, watch). Also be informed, that this gear list assumes you are staying in hosted huts with meals and beds available.
