WIN! A money can't buy trail running set-up!

09:34 9th September 2013 By Andrew Cremin

We’ve teamed up with Merrell to offer you a not-available in the shops prize.

MerrellBannerWe’re offering one lucky reader a bundle of Merrell trail running gear to help get you out there and barefooting your way along the trails.

One lucky reader will win a pair of Merrell’s brand new Gore-Tex Ascend Glove barefoot shoes worth £125 as well as some special bits of trail running clothing.

We have managed to snaffle away a pair of Merrell’s Ultra Trail Shorts and a running vest- neither of which is available to buy in any store in the UK.

Merrell Ascend Gore-Tex

Merrell Ascend Gore-Tex

The Ascend Glove is Merrells first barefoot shoe to use Gore-Tex and is brand new for autumn 2013. It’s a trail running shoe inspired by the Merrell Barefoot collection. It features 0mm drop from heel to toe and 6mm of cushioning for a true minimal experience. Merrell’s new Motion Mesh upper provides support and a seamless interior for an extremely comfortable feel, even sockless. A new Vibram® outsole is also engineered for optimal performance on a rugged trail, complete with Trail Protect plates for extra protection underfoot in the heel and forefoot.

All you have to do to win this running bounty is answer the frankly daft question below.
