The GORE RUNNING WEAR story begins in 1997 when we sought to combine the best possible materials and technologies in apparel for runners. Using the same ingenuity and inventive culture that gave us both GORE-TEX and GORE BIKE WEAR, GORE RUNNING WEAR was created. Back then, W. L. Gore & Associates successfully launched CONCURVE - Running Wear as pioneer in the emerging Running segment for highly functional clothing systems. With the Autumn Winter 0607 CONCURVE -Running Wear changed its brand name to GORE RUNNING WEAR.
Over the past years we have met many people, exchanged ideas with them and nurtured partnerships that have significantly shaped the development of the GORE RUNNING WEAR brand. Our work on visions and new solutions has always involved great passion and motivation, often resulting in products which were ahead of their time.
Our aim is to make the best apparel for runners, winning awards is just a bonus.Itís great that our work is getting a lot of recognition worldwide. It means that we arenít alone in thinking that running apparel should be comfortable in any weather. But the awards are not the reason we get up in the morning. Being runners ourselves we believe that intelligent functions and contemporary design add to the enjoyment of the sport. So we test excessively, obsess about details, go home late at night and the next day we do it all over again. Itís the only way we know how. Even though itís hard work we never look back, we continue to explore, research and listen to feedback. Because our only goal is to make apparel we would want to wear ourselves.
