Best Running Stores

RECOGNIZING THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS

Best Running Stores celebrates the stores leading by example in the run specialty industry—the retailers who continually show their commitment to their customers and community. Leaders among their peers, these stores are always striving to create a stronger industry.

New for 2021, the ceremony will take place December 2 in Austin, TX at the 15th annual The Running Event.

“We look forward to capping off three days of forward-looking conference sessions, dynamic product demonstrations and showcases, and peer-to-peer learning with a celebration of the Best Running Stores of 2021,” said Executive Director Christina Henderson.

Best Running Stores of 2020 at Market Week

In April of 2020, Diversified Communications was forced to postpone the highly anticipated Best Running Stores event due to the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic. We announced the winning stores in Running Insight’s July 2020 issue, and started planning how we could bring the industry together to celebrate in a safe and fun way.

On January 27, 2021, we honored those who are leading by example in the run specialty industry. Hosted by Executive Director Christina Henderson, the Best Running Stores of 2020 virtual awards ceremony celebrated the 60 winning stores—and announced the store of the year! The event was free and open to all industry professionals, including retailers, brands, and media.
