From the battlefields of Kuwait during Operation Desert Shield and Storm to the sands of Iraq and Afghanistan, he has been training his entire life. Having been trained in desert, mountain and cold weather survival and as a Combat Water Survival Instructor, he knows what it takes to survive in the harshest conditions on earth better than just about anyone and has designed the entire line of iRun products with one goal in mind….PERFORMANCE!
"I personally designed, tested, trained with and currently use every single one of the products on this site. After having run marathons, Ironman triathlons, snow and water skiing, snowboarding and scuba diving all over the world, I know what works and what doesn’t. From the specially designed earphones to the fit and function of my running hats and socks, these products will take everything you can throw at them and more." – Frank, inventor and founder
Use the tabs below to read through the story of how the iRun family of products was originally conceived.
From the constant tangling of the wires to the earphones being pulled out of my ear because of the tangling and weight of the wires being pulled down with each of the more than 1000 steps per mile, I was spending more time fumbling with wires than concentrating on running. And it wasn't just me. Everyone was having the same problems as I was, and we were all trading "secrets" of how to solve these problems. Everything from using paperclips to clamps, I tried everything to keep the wires from pulling and tangling, with nothing but temporary solutions.
Finally here was a solution that worked and was permanent. And it was a simple design. Reduce the length of the wires to 28cm (11 inches) and eliminate the problem of tangling and twisting as well as the added mass of the wires which pulls the earphones out of your ears. I trained for triathlons and Ironman races using my prototype and it worked flawlessly. So I started the long process of research and development. I had NO DEA how long and difficult is was!
Along with the full line of iRun Performance Earphone products, we also have manufacturers for all of the accessories that runners, triathletes and consumers use on a daily basis. This includes running hats, Hybrid-Compression High-Performance socks as well as Elastic Race Laces and race belts. The iRun brand has everything that the serious athlete wants and needs to train to not only be successful, but competitive as well.
