Stryd Footpod – early review

Gear guru, Paul Day, is lucky enough to get his hands (and feet) on a bunch of run technology well ahead of the retail curve. We’re lucky enough to be able to get eyes on – and permission to publish – his insights, here investigating the latest (maybe greatest?) Stryd Footpod, where it’s all about measuring and reacting to your instant power output, more so than being dictated by your heart rate (which is kind of a horse has bolted indicator)….

Run Larapinta: a rollercoaster ride

TRM trail reporter, Nicki Letts, and her partner Mat head to the iconic Red Centre of Australia to take on the rough but rewarding ride that is Run Larapinta, a multi day running adventure along the eponymous trail.  “You’ve got to be kidding me!” My disbelief echoes around the towering red gorge walls as I watch my running partner, Mat, heave his tired legs up the vertical rocks. This cannot be the right way. For the past eight kilometres, we’ve been…

Running, on average, the equivalent of just over a marathon a day, Samantha will…

Review: new Suunto Spartan Ultra

When it comes to gear releases, trail running has come a long way – the anticipation surrounding the new Suunto Spartan Ultra GPS watch has been speculatively spectacular. The murmurs. The guesses. The pre-judgements. It’s the trail equivalent to the release of a new Apple Mac. The trainspotters and tech geeks go a bit manic. They wee themselves a little. Luckily we have access to our own ‘Q’ (hello Bond fans) when it comes to inspecting the intricacies of space-aged boxes…
