Who We Are

"Get going. Get up and walk if you have to, but finish the darn race": The Trail Running Addicts Origin Story

There’s a distinctive look that trail runners get in their eyes when they’re on a trail, especially if they’re close to finishing their run. It’s a look of determination, sometimes relief. What’s always present though is a sense of incomparable personal accomplishment.

Drop bag empty, gel packs spent, shoes wrecked, caked in dirt or mud…

That look is ALWAYS there. Sometimes it’s just beneath the surface and other times it’s dripping from them like sweat. It’s in the fabric of their clothes. Soaked through into their skin.

We have always loved what trail running does for people so we made it our purpose to capture that spirit - as much as possible so you can stay true to the trail both on and off of it. 

Trail Running Addicts was created and is run by Aaron Burns and his girlfriend, Rachel Klungel. We are a small business (with big ambitions!) that operates out of London, Ontario Canada officially known as "The Forest City". 

We design products that embody the feelings of running trails for endurance enthusiasts, obsessed ultra marathoners, weekend warriors and everyone in between!

Our Values


Trail running is a solo journey but there’s a lot to learn through community. We are a safe place for runners to express and progress together.


We offer our best to everyone we interact with; athletes, consumers, employees and partners.

Imagination and Progress

Life presents endless opportunities so we are constantly looking ahead to improve our products, customer experience and community even if that means rewriting the rules.
