Supporter Spotlight: Newton Running!

I’m very happy to newton logohave the support of Newton Running as I train for the Kjölur Run. Their BOCO AT has quickly become a favorite go-to shoe for the trails. The shoe’s weather-resistant design is especially great for this time of year!

 

IMG_2350I’ve had a few snowy and muddy runs in them so far, and they’ve worked great–both with and without microspikes. I’ve also been out on the roads with the Newton Gravity III mileage trainer. It’s a responsive and speedy shoe (not to mention an awesome, head-turning yellow : ). I’m looking forward to putting some more miles on them.

Newton has also been instrumental in supporting the Sterling College Trail, Mountain, Ultra Running Team, and the company has provided team members with BOCOs to use for this year.

Many thanks from all!

 

Newton Running is a great match for both Sterling and for the Iceland Climate Run; Newton is the only running shoe company that’s a certified B-Corp, which means they take into account social and environmental responsibility as part of their business plan. Simply put, B-Corps believe that “all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.”
