May 19, 2021

On The Mountain Life, local entrepreneur and ultra runner Brian Beckstead joins the show to talk about his rumming shoe company.

Beckstead is the co-founder of Altra Running Shoes, which he launched in 2010 as a college student.

The inspiration for the new shoe design came from Beckstead wanting to avoid the painful blisters he got while running the Wasatch 100.
