As a result of the growing popularity of the sport and the magazine itself, Trail Running has unveiled a redesign in its latest issue.
The new look magazine now features more, bigger pictures, more input from readers, a cleaner font, and the colourful side strips have been replaced with bright, textured top bars and chunky section titles. It also now incorporates news mud splat and panel designs throughout.
The content has remained the same and the title has maintained the sand, mud, grass and water textures that give it its natural tone.
The first redesigned issue, which went on sale on 10 January, is packed with UK trail runs, a beginner’s guide to trail running, advice on improving technique including what to take on a winter run and gear reviews.
There are also features on Olympic and World Champion triathletes Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee and a Scottish man who's just broken a Scottish winter mountain running record around Ben Nevis and the Mamores.
Editor Claire Maxted said: “We’ve seen a massive growth in both Trail Running magazine and the activity itself over the last two years. There are now more off-road running races than ever, and our ever-growing 12,000 readers and 13,000 Facebook and twitter followers are testament to how this exciting, adventurous sport has taken off.
“As a result of the growth of the sport we thought it was the perfect time to refresh the magazine, we hope you enjoy it and guarantee the new look Trail Running magazine will get you fitter, faster and dirtier in 2013.”
