Introducing Brandon Johanns

Born and raised in the mountains of Colorado, Brandon spent his childhood playing and exploring the wilderness around his family’s home. He ran his first race in 2nd grade, a ¼ mile run around the school and across the playground. Leading up to race day, Brandon would show up early to school every day to practice running the course. Young Brandon's determination and preparation paid off, earning him the win!

Today, Brandon still enjoys training, racing and exploring the mountains around his home in Crested Butte, Colorado with his beloved border collie Aura.

“There’s a saying here in Colorado, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.” During a big day in the Colorado mountains, you might see rain, sunshine and even snow during one adventure. It’s important that your gear not only protects you from the elements, but that you feel comfortable all day long.

Montane’s dedication to producing the highest quality gear for all environments and climates makes their clothing and gear an easy pick when choosing your kit. It also feels good knowing Montane builds their products with sustainable materials, minimising the carbon footprint of their athletes. My top gear pick for any long run is the Gecko VP 5+ hydration pack!”
