About Running Northwest
Running Northwest was established in 2015 with the goal to be the running review authority for runners in the Pacific Northwest. As the years passed, our audience has grown dramatically to include readers all over the world. Every review is designed to provide a candid and no holds barred look at each product. Shoes are run for 50 or more miles before fingers even touch keys. Apparel and gear are taken out in the best and worst conditions. We taste some of the weirdest and trendiest nutrition supplements so you don’t have to. We smear on creams to see if they help with recovery to save you the trouble. Bottom line is, we want to provide a fair and honest review of everything we put out.
Founder and Chief Reviewer
Running Northwest was founded by Jeremy Krall, who began his foray into running much later in life. He grew up as a team sports kid bouncing between football, baseball, tennis, and more before finally landing on hockey which he took with him through college. Fast forward to some years and several pounds later as years behind a computer desk and cubicle had taken their toll, Jeremy found running, cycling, and inevitably triathlons. His passion for technology spilled over into the shoes, gear, and apparel he was using, and deep-diving into the data became his passion. It turned out others were interested in his work as well and thus, Running Northwest was born.
Jeremy is now a UESCA Certified Running Coach and spends his days on the roads and trails around Portland, Oregon. He has drafted new folks into the ranks of reviewers but still loves getting into it with most products, working with the brands directly, and is most happy just talking running in general.
Growing the Ranks
Our ranks have been growing and continue to grow as we bring in and out varying runners with a wide array of skill levels. We never designed Running Northwest to be just about high performance, but instead wanted to report on things that were highly accessible to all people. Because of that, we continually draft runners of all ages and skill levels to provide their thoughts and insight on a wide variety of products.
The goal of Running Northwest will always be the same, to provide the best reviews possible and remain unbiased and direct in our feedback to the running community.
