There is a powerful through-line from Oiselle HQ to our sponsored athletes to our Volée team and the broader run community. Lauren Fleshman, Kara Goucher, and Alison Désir are Athlete-Advisors at Oiselle. Through these paid positions, each represents Oiselle in running/sports, via their individual pursuits, and as part of the Oiselle Advisory Group, which helps shape the direction of the company. In turn, our goal is to support their ongoing work as athletes, activists, writers, and thought leaders. In addition to Kara, Alison, and Lauren, we help support more than 40 elite athletes (Haute Volée) across a wide range of distances and events, who are all striving to reach their fullest potential on the world stage. For the Haute Volée specifically, their training is aided by a portion of every Volée annual membership. Competition + community = team.
