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.
You can meet all the Best Running Store award winners in our announcement video.
