Tracksmith is an independent running brand inspired by a deep love of the sport. For years, the brand has elevated running wear, using best-in-class materials in timeless silhouettes that perform at the highest level. Now they’re doing the same with footwear. The Eliot Runner was developed to meet the rigorous demands of committed runners, providing the perfect balance of cushioning and responsiveness with classic Tracksmith style.
The inspiration for the Eliot Runner started with a feeling many runners experience – the delight in finding a natural surface while out for a run. Logging thousands of miles across New England, the Tracksmith team found those moments on pine needle trails, wood chip paths, and old indoor tracks. That’s the sensation they wanted to bring to the roads – soft, resilient, responsive and ready for anything. Step into the Eliot Runner: a Pebax-Powered® trainer inspired by the pep of New England’s natural surfaces.
See The Eliot Runner in person at Tracksmith’s Pop-Ups at the London and Chicago Marathons and their Boston store this fall before an exclusive opportunity to pre-order on October 24th.

After hanging up his spikes – but never his running shoes – Kyle pivoted to the media side of things, where he shares his enthusiasm, insights, and experiences with subscribers of The Lap Count newsletter, as well as viewers of CITIUS MAG live shows.
