For Run the Alps Clients and Friends Only, from Ibex and Patagonia

May 16, 2016

As Run the Alps has grown over recent years, we’ve found ourselves wanting to share our favorite trail running gear that we use when cruising along the Tour du Mont Blanc, under the Eiger, along the course of Sierre-Zinal, or in a quiet village far off the beaten path.

Once a year, before we head to the Alps for the season, we throw open our doors. This is that moment. If you’d like one of our Run the Alps products, please contact us directly. Because this offer is specifically for Run the Alps clients and friends, we’re able to offer prices that are well below retail pricing. Drop us a note for the low down!


NEW – Patagonia Duffel Bag:
Run the Alps has a new partnership with Patagonia, so we can make available our absolute favorite duffel for roaming around the Alps, the 60-liter Black Hole™. This duffel is perfect for those of you on an upcoming Tour du Mont Blanc trail run, or any other Run the Alps trip requiring shuttling gear. It’s absolutely indestructible, transitions easily to a backpack, and has a myriad of other features. (Video here.)

NEW – Ibex Merino Wool Hoodie: We’ve also added a Run the Alps version of our favorite Indie merino wool hoodie from Ibex. It’s great for cool-weather runs, and ridiculously cozy when it comes to taking the chill off after a long day in the mountains.

Ibex Merino Wool T-Shirt and Hat: Our enduringly-popular Run the Alps merino wool OD Heather Ibex t-shirt is back in stock, too, with limited supplies. We expect these to once again sell out quickly, so contact us right away if you want one! The same is true of our Run the Alps Meru hat. We love this cap for trail running — it’s super compressible, but warm when it matters. If you’ve never run in wool, it’s time to check it out. In our humble opinion, it just can’t be beat. (See this story on the Ibex blog, from Run the Alps, to find out why!).

You’ll find our Run the Alps products fashionably displayed here, courtesy of our novice models Isobel and John — photographed by adventure photographer Joe Klementovich — and drop us a note if you want to stock up! We’ll share pricing and color availability when you write.
