@Lee1995 thank you for reaching out!

What an awesome adventure you have ahead! We carry a few trail-runners that would work for the conditions, and terrain you’ll be experiencing. The following are a few options to get you started:

Also, here is an article to guide you through the process of selecting trail-running shoes. However, because footwear fit questions are really hard to answer online, our recommendation, if possible, would be to go to one of our stores for a fitting. 

Additionally, consider merino wool socks for your run because merino wool wicks moisture, has antimicrobial properties and naturally regulates temperature; it's warm in the winter, cool in the summer.

Hope this helps!
