About Us

4 All Runners was created by a group of three friends who love running and other outdoor sports. We created 4 All Runners to help everyone from beginning runners to advanced outdoor-sport athletes find real, authentic, and unbiased running tips and reviews on the latest running gear, including backpacks, hydration packs, and race vests.

Meet the Experts

The majority of our reviews come from Danielle, Christina, and Marcus.

The Running Goddess

Danielle has competed in 12 marathons, five triathlons, and just completed her second ultra-marathon! She graduated from the Arizona State University with a degree in Civil Engineering, and currently works at a consulting firm where she manages projects all around the United States and Canada. While at Arizona State, she was a member of the Sun Devil Track Team all four years and competed in the PAC-12 Championships three times!

The Traveler

Christina is the resident-traveler at 4 All Runners. Primary a mountain biker, Christina has also become an avid runner in the past few years. She has completed three half marathons, but mostly focuses on 5k races and long-distance cycling. She has traveled to 27 countries (and counting) and recently welcomed a newborn baby boy into her family! (Yay for Christina!)

The Trail Runner, M.D.

A runner by day and medical doctor by night, Marcus is an Emergency Room Physician based in the Phoenix, Arizona area. As he says himself, his flat feet prevent him from competing in marathons and super long races, but he loves cycling and trail running. He’s also 4 All Runner’s resident “Race Vest” expert. Upon meeting him for the first time, he’ll probably tell you that he personally owns over twenty race vests and fifteen running hydration backpacks! We like to tease him about this, but he’s always reminding us, “Some people like shoes, some people like running gear.” (Guilty!)

Where do we get our information?

We love trying out new running gear, and we’re always testing new products and other products that are gaining popularity. At an absolute minimum, two of us will try out the gear we’re reviewing, and we also make sure that we get quality feedback from 2 or 3 of our running buddies friends (especially when products are gender specific). We’re also known for getting feedback from other runners we meet on the trail!

We believe that with every review we write comes the responsibility for us to truly understand whatever it is we are reviewing, so we reach out to the manufacturers to make sure we get all of the details and specifications right. If we have trouble understanding the purpose of a particular accessory or even getting the adjustment straps to fit just right, we’ll find the answers so our reviews can be as informed and objective as possible.

If you’re visiting 4 All Runners, you probably love running and outdoor sports just as much as we do! We thank you for visiting our website, and we hope you find our tips, tricks, and reviews helpful! If we can help you out in any way, feel to contact us (link) or leave a comment. Thanks for reading!
