Trail Runner System

The Ruffwear Trail Runner Belt takes cues from trail running gear used by humans but it's been designed with our canine companions in mind for sporting activities and adventures together.

The complete system is perfect for use with the lightweight and sporty Ruffwear Hi & Light Harness and includes a running belt, water bottle and a lead giving you an instant and ready to go running setup.

Load Dispersing

The hands-free hip belt provides a comfortable, load-dispersing design with a bridle strap that means your canine running companion can roam side-to-side without taking you along for the ride.

Quick Release Strap

A useful (and some might say critical) function of the Trail Running System is a quick-release strap which gives you an out if your pal takes a sharp turn around a tree or to chase after a squirrel!

Ridgeline Lead

Included with the Hip Belt and Water Bottle is the redesigned 2018 Ridgeline Lead optimised for use as a running lead to complete the Trail Running System. The lead length is 1 - 1.8 m and utilises Ruffwear's optimal Wavelength webbing with shock absorbing properties and one-handed attachment.


Made with 420D ripstop nylon the Trail Runner is designed to stick with you on multiple adventures. Together the nylon webbing, YKK zips, and plastic buckles all combine together to create a sturdy and durable running system.

Storage Accessories

Stash pockets (including a zippered water-resistant pocket) carry human and canine essentials such as keys and treats, and a structured pocket on the back holds a water bottle (included).
