This is iRunFar’s first round up post in quite awhile. It’s got some news that we didn’t squeeze into our White River 50 race report, the end of END Footwear, and an article over at Competitor Running that might interest you.

It’s rare that I await a shoe with as much anticipation as I did for the Montrail Streak. I fell in love with the shoe when I tested a preliminary version of the Streak back in August and September of 2007. Having worn the production model for many months, I can now say that I’m […]

Each of the past two days I got a chance to hit the trails in the Montrail Streaks. They continue to get my seal of approval. Yesterday was a five mile run, three miles on trail and two miles off. The shoes felt smooth on the trail and I’d feel comfortable wearing them for stretch […]
