USATF Fall Running Lookbook Has Arrived

The USATF Fall Running Lookbook

You may have seen them at road races around the country. But now you can see them in the USATF 2011 Fall Running Lookbook. The team behind Driving the Sport, USA Track & Field’s program to promote the sport of running at races all over America, has put together a snazzy, not un-J.Crew-esque “Lookbook” featuring the latest USATF Nike gear and starring none other than the “Driving the Sport” team members themselves.

Driving the Sport is a program aimed at promoting running and race walking all over the country. Their three colorfully painted vehicles—Dash, Miles and Stretch—are making stops at races like the 75th Annual Cowboy Jamboree in Oklahoma, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and the Big East Championships in Kentucky. Manned by fresh-faced twenty-somethings, they’re selling USATF merchandise and memberships to support USATF programs and events, blogging their exploits and tweeting up a storm. Race directors can even put in a request for one of the vehicles to make a pit-stop at their event.

For those of us who won’t have a chance to see them at an expo near us, the Fall Running Lookbook will have to do. The Lookbook’s USATF Nike gear includes singlets, tights, shorts, half-zip pull-overs, hats, arm-warmers, shoes and more. You can purchase any of the Lookbook merchandise at All proceeds go toward funding USATF initiatives from youth activies to elite athelte development and even Team USA itself.

    Karla—We love track and stay angry that it doesn’t rank higher here. We had an idea that maybe you could use our music to energize the base, so to speak. – Video Tube
