New! The Sub 2:30 Marathon Poster

Last year, in the spirit of celebrating women’s achievement in sport, we published the 4:30 Poster: a list of all the U.S. women who had broken the incredible barrier of a sub 4:30 mile. We plan to update and re-publish that list every year in the fall. 

While we love the mile, we also look to the marathon. And with all due respect to Breaking2 and the energy around the possibility of a male runner breaking the 2:00 barrier for 26.2, we asked: what is the benchmark we can call out for women? What is a finish time considered exceptional for women in terms of performance and speed?

We present you with the new 2:30 marathon poster, including all the U.S. women who have broken the mark - including our very own Kara Goucher and Allie Kieffer. To them, and to every woman who takes on the marathon - at any pace or finish time - we salute you. And we salute the tradition of tradition.

Our limited edition 2:30 poster ships free with all web orders starting today! While supplies last.
