ORANGE MUD NEWS
Orange Mud receives Gear of the Year award from Runners World
Life is funny. We worked like mad on our HydraQuiver series through hundreds of changes, somewhere around 60 prototypes between the three model years, and countless hours of testing to get it right. The Transition and Seat Wrap? Well there were quite a few revisions, maybe 6 or 7 to get it right. I guess sometimes it's the simpler things that make a big difference. Today we're so grateful to see our product as the #1 Gear of the Year award in the Runner's World December issue. Please pick up a copy to support them and hey, while you're at it grab a wrap too ok? ;-)
Thanks! ~Orange Mud.

From their site:
Salt Lake Running Company has been keeping Utah’s runners happy and running since 1995. Originally named Sporting Soles, we changed our name to let you know that we’re all about running. That means our staff, our products, our programs and our customer support are all about supporting you in the sport.
Our staff is comprised of some of the most enthusiastic and accomplished runners around. Owners Guy and Debbie Perry have assembled a staff of runners who are knowledgeable about anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and nutrition. In addition, we have experience in coaching, training and retail. Ongoing training ensures that we stay on top of the latest innovations in running shoes and apparel. Because we’re all runners, you’re likely to see us running along your favorite routes or in local races.
While we have experience running both track and cross country in high school and college, most of us are equally comfortable running with baby joggers and dogs these days. We also enjoy participating in 5ks to marathons and even triathlons.
Our products are chosen to support you in your running. We carry running shoes, socks, insoles, apparel, nutritional supplements, gels, hydration equipment, running books and more. We see running as a life-long endeavor. When we sell you a pair of shoes, we think about your needs as a runner—your stride, your foot strike, your foot dimensions and the terrain you cover.
We also provide a biomechanical analysis. That means we’ll record your stride on a treadmill and show it back to you in slow motion so we can see if you’re a pronator, a forefoot striker or a supinator. Best of all, it’s free! We’ll then show you the shoes that are best for you.
Because we believe that Utah is an incredible place to live a running lifestyle, we sponsor several races and fun runs each year, including the competitive USATF road racing circuit and the relaxed and non-competitive Sports AM running events, as well as the Tri Utah Triathlons. Because we’re interested in supporting young runners, we even sponsor some high school meets.
Whatever your needs, whatever your level of running, we’re here to support you and to keep you running.
