Photo backdrops don’t get much better than the Canadian outdoors. That’s perhaps why some of the best Instagram accounts come from trail runners, races and photographers.

Not only is the photo-sharing platform a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest from the scene, personal accounts may also offer an insider’s look at how and where runners train, their other hobbies and much more.
