Building our Community of Runners & Walkers
Holiday Gift Ideas
What do we do besides giving superb shoe fitting and customer service? We try to give back to the community! Yes, we do have weekly group social runs that bring community of runners together, and we do provide gift certificates and packet pick up locations for local races, but we do so much more than that.
We look at ourselves as more than just a retailer. The above examples are a few of the ways we help support our local community. We appreciate your support as it allows us to do more of these types of things.
