Update: We have posted the fourth edition of the gear swap “catalog” at the bottom of this post. It will be updated as more people contribute their gear.
Including your gear in the catalog makes it more visible, increasing the chances of people buying your stuff. To have your items included, email email@example.com.
Trail Run Manitoba is proud to announce it will be hosting a gear swap and sale on March 8, 2017, at the Park Theatre. The gear swap will take place between 6:00 and 7:00pm, right before the Trails In Motion Film Festival kicks off.
We love gear swaps because:
So, how will this year’s gear swap work? Trail Run Manitoba is acting as the host. We will provide the venue and we are putting together a “catalog” of items that will be for sale to help people who are selling gear get advance interest in their items. Trail Run Manitoba will charge a $5 flat fee to everyone who registers to sell gear to cover that work. We’ll put the money toward new equipment for our races.
We think this format will work very well because people selling gear will have access to lots of like-minded outdoor adventurers. People looking to pick up used gear will be able to inspect it in person without any commitment. Gear swaps are an especially good opportunity for novice trail runners, or experience trail runners who want back-up gear they can put in their drop bags for longer races.
