We introduce to you below, our newest addition to www.rockcreek.com

Segmented by the essentials such as Top Selling Shoes, Socks, Running Insoles, Running shirts, and Running shorts, this is your guide for all running needs whether you are a seasoned trail runner or just beginning.

Trail Running Tip for this weekend:
We all need to keep in mind the importance of layering and maintaining your core temperature while out running. Long distance runs in the woods offer potentially hypothermic conditions, so be sure you always start with a good baselayer.
Rock/Creek suggests these top two brands of baselayers:

Patagonia Capilene:

Offered in 4 weights, this synthetic baselayer provides the most versatility among weather changes Men- You have your good ol’ basic colors for baselayers to match and layer, however, Women- You gotta take a look at the expanded selection of colors and styles Patagonia has created for us this Fall season!


Icebreaker
:
The finest Merino in the world is used to make this high activity performance product. Merino is a soft textured, rapidly-renewable material that breaths and retains heat automatically because it is a natural fiber. It absorbs moisture off the skin and evaporates it out during movement. Rock/Creek carries products by Icebreaker for Men’s, Women’s and Accessories.

Look into the Rock/Creek Trail Series to see which races inspire you to get out and run.
