Magda Boulet’s Summit Trail Mix Recipe
Marathoner and ultra-runner MAGDALENA BOULET knows a thing or two about needing to maintain energy—especially while out on the trails. In fact, Boulet incorporates long, steep hikes into her training, to help build and maintain her endurance. She created this trail ‘super’ mix to help her properly fuel for any trek. “Superfoods are what this trail mix is all about,” she says. “It’s filled with nutrients that have powerful anti-inflammatory properties to keep us healthy and running strong. It also tastes extra-delicious after hiking to the top of a summit; it’s a little sour, a little sweet, a little salty, a little spicy—and lots good for you.”
Mix some up for yourself, and fuel your next adventure.

The major challenge for most athletes is to remain injury free in the lead up to an event. We know that our success lies in the ability to train day in and day out, to get to the start line in as good a shape as possible. The problem though, is that many of us have dialled in on the training side of things and we don’t think as much about the recovery side of things.
