RYP Wear – Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run

It has been an exceptional summer for RYPWear! Three ladies, Luanne Park, Bettie Smith, and Barb Ashe, wore RYPWear skirts while running Western States.

Luanne Park, also sponsored by Auburn Running Company,  wore the “LooCanRun” prototype and beat the 24 hour mark!
Bettie Smith won the Western States over 60 age division and had the following to say about her RYPWear skirt.

Hi Sandra,

I wore one of your skirts on Western States and wanted to let you know that it performed beautifully, for the entire distance whether it was wet or dry, and it garnered truly an unbelievable number of comments and inquiries. At all daylight aid stations people asked where it came from and during the day and night other runners, both male and female, said how much they liked it.

“That’s the cutest skirt I’ve ever seen”
“You’re the second most colorful person out here, behind Tutu Man.
“You’re totally rocking that outfit” (not something a 60+ woman hears very often:-) Where did you get that skirt? (countless times)

Thanks for your part in making my WS memorable and thanks for a great product (and those pockets are the best). I hope you get lots of orders!



Barb Ashe, always an inspiration, coming up out of Squaw Valley. You go girl!
