The Rogue runs free and the timing couldn’t more perfect.

Montrail unveiled their new minimalist trail runner, the Rogue Racer at Outdoor Retailer show just last week, and August 11th, it was announced that the Gold Ray Dam on Oregon’s Rogue River will be removed. The new 157-mile stretch of free running waters on the Rogue River has been a long time coming; a great accomplishment for the river’s advocate organizations such as Montrail’s Gives Back partner The Conservation Alliance, Waterwatch and Rogue Flyfishers.

Max King, Montrail runner and fellow Oregonian, loves life’s sweet ironies. “Just as we announced the new S11 Rogue Racer, a minimalist trail shoe named after the Rogue Valley, the Rogue River gets freed up as well. It’s great that the salmon, the river and the trail runner are all getting the chance to once again run free.” Max worked closely with the Montrail Product Team to design an ultralight and fast trail runner, something for all his miles on the trail, both in training and on race day.
