Running Store Spotlight
We all know that COVID-19 is hitting small businesses hard. So we’re also going to use this space to promote local running stores that remain open for business. We’ll give you a little background on the store, let you know how they’ve changed their operations to protect community health while still meeting all of our runner needs, and provide their contact info, so that you can place an order for anything you need (or think you might need down the road).
This week’s spotlight store is longtime MDRA friend, Fleet Feet Marathon Sports in South Minneapolis.
Marathon Sports makes the best post-run breakfast for Polar Bears! When they host store runs, they make frittatas and French toast and have a whole spread of other treats.
Marathon Sports has sponsored a number of MDRA races over the years, including Victory races and City of Lakes Half Marathon.
Marathon Sports manager Zach Schendel is a Minnesota native and raced in the 2007 NYC Olympic Trials Marathon.
In addition to the big brands, they also sell some boutique running shoe and clothing brands, including On Cloud running shoes and running clothes. They also sell Smart Feet casual and dress shoes, which are supposed to be great for your feet!
