Last September I was at the finale of the Golden Trails World Series at the Skyline Scotland and asked some of the top international athletes like Stian Angermund-Vik and Meg Mackenzie what strength work they do, why they think it’s important for trail runners, and some of their essential moves. 

This film is powered by Ellis Brigham, their new trail running range is now available in 24 stores nationwide, or shop online here.
