If you’re a runner visiting Boulder, it’s hard to resist heading into the Boulder Running Company’s flagship store on Pearl Street. Named “Best Running Store” by the Independent Running Retailers of America in 2006, the expansive Boulder location is just one of many stores across the state. The ample parking lot means you won’t have to fight for street parking or pay for the meters, which is good news since you might find yourself lingering in the store for a while. The store stocks everything you could possibly need, from gear to shoes, injury prevention and treatment items, and even treadmills. The staff is extremely attentive and one of the biggest I’ve seen at any running store, and they’ll perform a free gait analysis to make sure you get the shoes you need. In addition to providing all of the running supplies you could ever need, the store also offers free weekly group runs each Wednesday night with free beer at the end and a weekly raffle for BRC swag. Yoga classes are also offered on Friday mornings at a cost of $5 for a one hour class with free bagels and coffee at the end. A trip to BRC is worth it even if you don’t need any running gear!
