Champion the run for all

People

Until we all run on equal ground

The shoes and gear we develop, the experiences we create, and the partnerships we build should contribute to a more inclusive and accessible running community.

People

Diversity, equity, and inclusion

We believe in the power of a diverse running community that includes people of different races, abilities, genders, ages, sexual orientations, body types, and circumstances. We are pursuing practices that will achieve equity in our business and our sport — so everyone feels a sense of belonging as their own, authentic selves.
