The Company We Keep
Behind every Run the Alps trip are great partners. From the gear we rely on to the crew who arranges hut and hotel accommodations, they’re a big part of the Run the Alps experience. Thanks, everyone!
ALPSinsight is the creation of Dan and Janine Patitucci of Patitucci Photo. Their stunning photos of mountain sports in the Alps, combined with great storytelling, makes for one of the most compelling, informative and lively Alps sports websites going. Run the Alps is both a content and booking partner with ALPSinsight.
Working with the talented and knowledgeable team at Alpinehikers, we’re able to create some of the best trail running trips in the Alps. Troy and his staff are experts in the travel business!
The American Trail Running Association advances the interest of trail runners around the country. We’re happy to support their work, and hope you will too.
Icebreaker makes durable, comfortable merino-wool technical clothing. It’s some of our favorite gear. They maintain high ethical standards in their supply chain, too—something important to the staff of Run the Alps.
At Run the Alps, we believe we all need to be stewards of the environment. Joining One Percent is one way we can help. We’re proud to be a corporate member of this pioneering organization.
Run the Alps is a team partner of Patagonia. We use their gear on all of our trips, from their rugged Black Hole duffels, to our guides’ jackets, right down to our Run the Alps trail running caps.
Our very first Run the Alps meeting was with Dan and Janine Patitucci. Since that visit in Interlaken, Switzerland years ago, they’ve become friends with many of our guides and partners. Together, we’ve worked on projects like ALPSinsight—and there’s more to come. Their beautiful photography can be found throughout our website and on social media, and we couldn’t be happier about it!
Salomon continues to live and work on the cutting edge of trail running shoes and gear. Our Salomon friends range from their US offices in Ogden, Utah, to their world headquarters in Annecy, France. We admire their efforts to advance trail running and trail racing, including Salomon Advanced Week and Salomon Running TV.
A small Vermont-based company, Skida is a progressive company with innovative products. Run the Alps’ buffs and cold-weather trail running hats are produced by our friends at Skida.
Jeff and Brad Boggess have created one of our favorite trail running foods. Trail Butter is healthy, nutritious, tasty… and gives you plenty of power for the miles ahead. We haul a delivery over at the start of each season for our clients!
