Starting in our Nation’s capital, Michael Wardian (The North Face/Hoka) smashed the Rock and Roll USA Marathon in Washington, D.C.with a second place time of 2:34. This is a remarkable feat in the aftermath of a severe injury that had him out of the running game for six months. Our RUN Original Weight sock was there to protect his feet every step of the way.
Moving westward, Brandy Erholtz (New Balance) placed 2nd at the Dion United States National Snowshoe Championships in Bend, Oregon. Her accomplishment really drives home Injinji’s ability to perform in any shoe. Snowshoes…talk about versatility!

We couldn’t take our eyes off those bright pink Ex-Celerator Compression socks.
Dave Mackey (Hoka) made a last minute switch from his initial plans to run Chucknaut 50K and took 1st place at the Rodeo Valley 50K in Sausalito, CA instead. Downhill slopes proved no issue to Dave as he flew through the finish in his TRAIL Micro sockswith a time of 3:40:54.

It was double Injinji trouble at the Tarawera 100K in Rotorua, New Zealand with Timothy Olson (The North Face) and Jason Schlarb (Hoka) securing 2nd & 11th places in 8:56:45 and 11:19:50, respectively. Their sock of choice: the RUN Mini-Crew sock.
