From choosing the right trail-running shoe to dealing with threatening wildlife on the trail, Where the Road Ends: A Guide to Trail Running, is filled with advice and details that will benefit anyone interested in heading off road.

Written by the brain trust of the trail-running website,, Meghan M. Hicks (senior editor) and Bryon Powell, (publisher), the book is organized so you can skip around and tackle what topic interests you most, or read it straight through. Hicks and Powell have a combined 35 years of trail-running experience, and each chapter offers a list of places and races that will inspire you. It has plenty of information to get a beginner started as well as advice for any level of trail runner.
