Run Oregon’s Awards of the 2nd Quarter 2023

I review a lot of items at Run Oregon. One of the perks we get is getting our hands on the best running gear. Its always nice to keep the running closet stocked with the latest and greatest items.

I thought I would highlight my favorite gear from April – June 2023. These are NOT the release date of the items – solely the timeframe that my review went live. I’d also note that it’s nearly impossible to narrow these down.

We could come up with a ton of criteria to land on the winner in these categories, but I’m just gonna do it this way. When all of my clothes are clean and shoes are put away – these are the items that I reach for. That doesn’t always make them the fanciest, best, or ones with the most tech in them. They just have happened to hit me right these first few months.

With that being said:

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
