We are born out of a love of running, nature and creativity

Trail & Kale is the online home of the trail running and adventure-related advice and inspiration we have gathered over years of traveling and exploring the world’s trails. It is also the home of our blog, which covers other aspects of our lifestyle, including converting our Sprinter Van into a Tiny Home, and advice for living a plant-based lifestyle.

Hello and welcome to Trail & Kale! We’re Alastair and Helen and we’re excited you’re here.

We’re constantly inspired by the world’s trails, exploring beautiful natural places and connecting with like-minded people. As well as finding new adventures and working to achieve balance in all aspects of life, we also love spending time on our other projects, which currently include converting our Mercedes Sprinter Van into a Tiny Home on Wheels, training our young Border Collie Kepler, and living a mindful, plant-based lifestyle.

How did we get to this point?

Like anything worth doing, it wasn’t easy. But we’re here to share our tips based on personal experience, from being a beginner runner to training for your first ultramarathon, moving halfway across the world to pursue your dreams, converting your first campervan, and changing how we eat to a healthier plant-based diet.

Hey, I'm Alastair. I started Trail & Kale to share the mental & physical benefits that trail running and nature had given me. This site now inspires hundreds of thousands of people all over the world to trail run, hike, adventure more, and live a healthy plant-based lifestyle. It's also a place to learn how to chase your dreams, untether from convention and live more self-sustainably.
Hi, I’m Helen, one of Trail & Kale's founders. Things that bring us joy are spending time together running, hiking and adventuring in beautiful places around the world, working towards being more self-sustainable and living a healthy, plant-based lifestyle. We changed our lives to realize our dreams and share advice on how you can do the same.
