Born in the Mountains, KÜHL is many things.
KÜHL is art at its highest, captivating all dimensions: beauty, desire, logic and reason. Never satisfied with current standards, KÜHL questions everything and is always searching and questioning the norm. KÜHL combines the study of body mechanics with a focus on fit while your body is in motion. KÜHL is passion, at the crossroads where beauty and desire meet logic and reason. KÜHL is always innovating, combining art, science and pure craftsmanship with groundbreaking designs that change the status-quo and set new benchmarks. Born from their rebellious philosophy to question everything, break the rules and reject the status quo, KÜHL focuses on the freedom of movement.
Kuhl supported the Stray Dogs in the World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji, including Route 66 UltraRun Race Directors Heather (team assistant crew) and athletes Marshall Ulrich and Medical Team leader Dr. Bob Haugh by providing all of the clothing for Team Stray Dogs’ uniforms, and more casual clothing for pre- and post-race events. [use small photo KUHL Stray Dogs .jpg as appropriate] The Stray Dogs had the KÜHL-est, most functional, and best-looking uniforms in the race, hands down. KÜHL’s support then, and continued support now, is appreciated and valued more than we can express. Many other members of the Route 66 UltraRun Team and our friends and family wear KÜHL . . . a lot! Meaning, it’s about the only thing you’ll see them wearing.
Thus, it truly is our honor to share all that KÜHL is and that we believe in with all of our participants, and with all of you. Thanks for your support KÜHL!

A household toaster oven inspired Balanced Cushioning. That’s the foundation of Altra Running: innovative, disruptive thinking.
Altra supported the Stray Dogs in the World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji by providing their incredible shoes for the entire team, including the Ulrich’s and Dr. Bob. Route 66 UltraRun ‘Gonzo Media Pro’ Rick Baraff is a member of Altra RED Team USA. Our friends and family wear Altra’s, whether for running or ‘just’ to have a well-fitting, comfortable, cushioned shoe that supports them and avoids pain from being on their feet all day. So, yes, the Route 66 UltraRun team are all-in believers in the actual FootShape™ design of Altra’s. Why aren’t all shoes, especially running shoes, actually designed to fit the human foot? We don’t know, but we appreciate and promote the fact that Altra has figure it out and make the best running shoes available.
