I’m Claire Maxted, co-founder and former editor of Trail Running magazine (2010 – 2017), now the proud owner of YouTube channel Wild Ginger Films for trail running advice & inspiration.

At Wild Ginger Films, you’ll find race recces, nutrition ideas, training advice and Q&As, plus interviews with top trail runners like Kilian Jornet, Emelie Forsberg and Anton Krupicka. Plus there’s advice from fell running legends like Joss Naylor and Billy Bland, as well as industry professionals and coaches.

NEW for 2018: I’ll be testing the best trail running gear as I train for the 250mile Cape Wrath Ultra, 8-days across the Scottish wilderness this May. Plus coaching advice from 2016 winner, Montane athlete Marcus Scotney.
