Our VP of Finance shares why the ST-2 is her "renaissance" shoe

The powers that be have asked me to write about my love for the ST-2. Let’s start by saying that I am an accountant. I can deliver a top-notch spreadsheet or analysis at a moment’s notice, but writing a blog isn’t really my jam. That being said, I like to think that I’m funnier than the average CPA – but my husband assures me I’m only slightly witty. So, let’s give this a go and see what happens….I started working at Topo 5 years ago as a newbie runner -- my athletic background was... [view more]

Good Luck Boston Marathoners!

Veteran Boston Marathoners on the Topo Team lend their wisdom to runners racing Boston for the first time

For those of you gearing up to run the Boston Marathon on Monday, we gathered a few stories, tips and highlights to look forward to from our very own veteran Boston Marathoners here at Topo HQ and on our ambassador team. We start with our CEO and founder, Tony Post, who has ran the Boston Marathon nine times (twice as a "bandit" back when they let you do that as long as you didn't go through the finishers' chute and mess up the finish line)! “In college at University of Tulsa in the late 70’s...

Professional Ultrarunner and 5th Place Finisher at Western States 100 2016, Paul Giblin, Signs With Topo Athletic

Following Paul Giblin on social media is like being transported to a magical place – one can easily see why the mountains are his calling. But despite the fact that Paul has won the West Highland Way race (the UK’s equivalent to the Western States) three times in a row – breaking the course record each time – and the Javelina 100 in 2015, running didn’t come into his life until about 10 years ago.

Move like a tiger.

Welcome Rachel McBride, pro triathlete and our first sponsored athlete!

 We instantly fell in love with Rachel (a.k.a. The Purple Tiger), which is why this Valentine’s Day announcement is ever-so-perfectly timed. She exudes so much personality and charisma for life and the sport of triathlon that it is no wonder why people are constantly inspired by her to get outside and move. Plus, how can you not fall for a woman who runs a 6:38 beer mile?!If that wasn’t enough, Rachel bounced back from injury last season to place 3rd in the ITU Long Distance World... [view more]

Reflecting on a Year Marked by Milestones and a Few Stretchmarks

CEO and founder, Tony Post, talks about how better is the choice made every day here at Topo Athletic

I spent much of January thinking about the year we left in our wake and how we could improve in 2017. I’m proud of what our team accomplished in 2016, but I also realize we’ve got to do better, and it starts with ME.Some of the challenges that presented themselves in 2016 were the result of growing faster than expected – hence, the stretchmarks! We were happy that the Hydroventure, MT-2 and Ultrafly were honored with awards from the editors at major publications like Outside, Runner’s World,... [view more]
