There are thousands of trail runners in every corner of the world and most are addicted to discovering their next great route. Enter Trail Embassy, a social network designed to connect runners around the world.

“Trail Embassy is out to create a global network of passionate trail runners who will host and guide each other on trail runs as we travel abroad or stay local,” says Trail Embassy founder Brett Sharkey. “I have had the good fortune to be hosted and guide other runners and can truly say they are equally rewarding.”

Sharkey took South African couple Bev and Gavin Grobelaar to Moose Mountain west of Calgary. “It was so gratifying to introduce them to a local gem and watch as they marvelled at the view from the top.” Trail Embassy boasts members around the world, from Singapore to Switzerland, Australia to Costa Rica.
