What started as a bar bet between two gentlemen of who could race from the middle of town their small town to the top of the 3,022ft Mount Marathon and back the fastest, has now become an annual tradition for the people of Seward for decades. With a total roundtrip distance of just 3ish miles, the route is known for it’s incredibly steep grade making the run more of an intense climb up and a fast, free fall down.

We weren’t started in some corporate office, but in the back room of a Wasatch Mountain running store. Our founders, —elite athletes and running store managers, —wanted a shoe that let you run the way you were born to. They noticed that the design of most running shoes was hurting runners more than helping them. Elevated heels promote high-impact landing and narrow toe boxes squeeze the toes out of their natural position.
