Dozens of professional athletes and influencers traveled to Seattle, Wash. last weekend to participate in Oiselle’s Runway Slam, a show presenting the brand’s Spring 2018 collection. With runners like Lauren FleshmanKelly Roberts, Jenn Wilson and Kelly Herron taking the runway and later presenting their messages of female strength onstage, the event was an inspiring, body positive reminder of the significant steps the running community has taken in recent years to redefine the term “runner” and welcome athletes of all backgrounds with open arms. Browse through the gallery above for images taken at the show (and a few from the indoor track meet at which select runway athletes competed earlier in the day at University of Washington’s Dempsey Indoor Track).
