Your mythology is a bit rusty, but you're pretty sure Zeus became king of the gods by winning a 50k up Mount Olympus, and Hercules only came down to earth to thru-hike the AT. You don't need to be an all-powerful being to get all powerful trail performance with the Altra Olympus Trail Running Shoe. Redesigned to give you more support and traction on any trail, the Olympus 3 is a trusted go-to for ultrarunners and thru-hikers alike. New to the Olympus is a redesigned upper, built with minimal seams to be more breathable and resistant to everyday trail abrasion. The midsole is now more responsive and allows for a greater natural flex, promoting a more efficient and speedy stride. A Vibram MegaGrip outsole provides durable grip on dusty switchbacks and slippery climbs. It's also been widened at the heel for increased stability on long and rugged runs. A hook and loop tab at the heel easily attaches to gaiters to keep trail debris from sneaking in. For the rest of the shoe, you've got all of Altra's innovative technology working to keep your foot healthy and your performance high. A FootShape toe box helps your toes to spread naturally while keeping your big toe in a straight position for more stability and power. And like all of Altra's shoes, the Olympus 3 comes with 0mm drop for a natural and low-impact stride, so you can go further in comfort.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
