During cooler weather if I go out for less than an hour I don't take water, in hot summer weather I do bring water I have a belt that holds a water bottle... I don't do more than 1 hour runs but the people I know who do bring water, longer than 1 hour they bring gels. Using gels, I've heard, is trial and error.
