THANK YOU…

... for checking out Victory Sportdesign and the Victory Bags. The word is out and it goes a little something like this...

"Very helpful keeping items organized during a timed event. Your bag = efficiency and nice looking to boot."
-ANN TRASON (need we say more?)

"Ready for a weekend up on the mountain!" With all the essentials @thenorthface @injinji @Naturahealth and @Victorysportdesign”
-TIMMY OLSON, 2x Western States 100 Champion

“Don’t know what bag to use? Victory Sportdesign makes a popular drop bag with clear pockets that make it easy to identify your food and gear.”
-OUTSIDE ONLINE: The Top 10 Ultramarathon Training Tips

My Victory Bag was key in getting me in-and-out of checkpoints at my FASTEST ever Angeles Crest 100 miler by 1-hr, 13-min! I earned my 2nd SILVER buckle there in 4-attempts. Thanks, Victor!!!"
-JIMMY DEAN FREEMAN, head coach & founder: Coyote Running

“I’ve been a huge fan of Victory Bags since they launched back in 2012. Both my crew and I love the simplicity and ease of use and I can’t tell you how much time I’ve saved at aid stations while racing.
I’m looking forward to working with Victor and the rest of the team to represent the brand.”
-SALLY McRAE, 7th place female finisher Western States 100, 2015

This bag is the coolest run-related thing to come around in a really long time. Its design is inspired and it really does cut down on how long it takes to find the things you want when in an aid station.
-LISA HENSON, former editor UltraRunning Magazine

“I would not have run the Pinhoti 100 without my bags. They were most essential to my 25hour and 21 minute finish! Without question, your bags are one of the top five running gear (products) every runner should have. I will not run another Ultra without them. Thank you for a great running bag.”
-THOMAS E. BOOKER, Runner

“Spotted a Victory Sportdesign bag today at Run Woodstock in Hell, MI...I also used mine and loved it! Everything was so accessible and organized! Added some motivational pieces to the front of my Bear II as I start my training next week for my first 100 miler...Thanks Victory Sportdesign for keeping me organized & can't wait to see the Grizzly and all its possibilities!”
-JESSICA HEBBEN ERICSON, Runner

“The Victory Bag is handy everywhere, even in the Himalayas! Fueled me to 4th place!”
-BURT KEELY, runner/musician/entrepreneur

In addition to training bag and drop bag duties, my Bear II also performs well as commuter bag, carrying my work clothes to the office. A great product, one of my most valuable running accessories!
-CHRIS BASSETT, Runner

...And the list goes on. That's a lot of good mojo from folks who have been diggin' their VICTORY BAGS! Check them out yourself, and see why we've become "the greatest gear bag ever!"

Also, check out our Blog: TO THE VICTOR... and see what's what about what in our experience of the trail, road, and ultrarunning world. Thanks again!

Drop Bags- A how-to guide by guest blogger and Victory Athlete: Ken ‘All Day’ Michal

Over the years, I’ve been incredibly fortunate to run many long ultras including multiple 100 and 200 milers (Western States 100, HURT 100, Pigtails Challenge 200 and Tahoe 200 among others)!  Drop bags can be a life saver in long events and the right drop bag strategy can help shave a lot of important time […]

The heART of Pacing

Not too long ago I had an interesting conversation… Alright, it was actually a friendly argument with one of my San Francisco Running Co. cohorts about pacing. Specifically between the approach of pacing from behind, or up in the front. Without getting into the details of our discussion, it dawned on me that I had […]

Getting TORE UP at the Tor Des Géants:

[This is the abridged version. Full story to come when I can wrap my head around it. 😉 ]   No matter how well I plan, there will always be the chance for mistakes (story of my life). Mistakes are a golden opportunity to learn. That’s part of life, right? Live and learn. And life […]

Alex is Awesome

The miles we travel and those we meet along the way

January of 2012, I got an email from Palo Alto’s running superstar, Gary Gellin, asking me if I had any interest in doing a Fastest Known Time Attempt (FKT) around the 165 mile Tahoe Rim Trail, which follows along some of the tallest peaks surrounding Lake Tahoe, California. Naturally, without hesitation, I said, “Hey, sure, […]
