...And tap into the Trail & Kale Community

Collaborate with a specialist blog dedicated to trail running and adventures, for people who are inspired by nature.

We help people explore new places, discover new experiences and inform them about gear, events, nutrition and hospitality & travel businesses that makes these adventures possible.

We travel for trail races and adventures, exploring new parts of the world and sharing experiences, advice and information with our community through our blog and social media using high quality written, photographic and video content.

Our community are lovers of nature and adventure, discerning and adventurous. We know what we like, and work hard to enjoy a healthy balance of:

  • Enjoying our comfort zone when we’re at home: a cosy, peaceful place to stay, good food, coffee and wine, and great company
  • Getting out of our comfort zone and challenging ourselves by exploring and experiencing new places through running, hiking and other adventures, with the right gear for the job.

We understand that time is a precious and scarce resource, so at Trail & Kale we provide relevant, authoritative and inspirational content to our community as an alternative to the ‘noise’ of mass-market media.
