Georgetown Running Company has the distinction of employing the longest tenured running store employee in the United States – Wilson Komen, a native Kenyan and marathon winner. In addition to Wilson’s expertise, every employee of the Georgetown Running Company has run competitively at some level. With locations in both Chevy Chase and Georgetown, GRC offers the largest selection of racing flats and spikes in the DC area. The store performs video gait analysis and also has a large selection of nutritional products. The Georgetown location is the home base of the DC Road Runners, which meets on Saturday mornings for group runs. For those looking for a less competitive environment, no-drop group runs are held at the Georgetown location on Wednesday at 7 pm with paces ranging from 8-12 minute miles. The route is 3-6 miles, depending on the week, and approximately 5-10 people attend. Slower runners are not left behind, but there is no run-walk group.  The chance to run with a marathon winner and running coach certainly adds a unique twist to your typical weekday run!
