Ithaca is located in the Finger Lakes Region of central New York, which also means that it is home and host to thousands of trail runners each year. With an emphasis on nature, panoramic views, and non-road/non-track conditions, trail running has steadily grown in popularity. Trail running shares a number of common injuries with road or track running: blisters, chafing, and muscle cramps to name only a few. However, the trails introduce the greater possibility of sprains (think loose gravel), abrasions, and lacerations. IthacaSports has braces and supports that are intended to help you recover from trail-running injuries, as well as products to combat hotspots, blisters, and chafing.
