This week I paid a visit to Runologie for their weekly group run. The run is open to all runners and starts from the shop on Hillsborough Street in downtown Raleigh Thursdays at 6pm. In advance of the run they also host a free 15-20 minute core exercise class inside the shop. After the run you can cool down with a cold beer from State of Beer which is conveniently located right next door.
Runologie is the only independently owned and operated running store in Raleigh. They have a great staff with a ton of experience and a focus on community and developing one-on-one relationships with customers. They offer a wide selection of running shoes, apparel, and running gear as well as training programs for runners of all levels. If you are new to running or a seasoned runner looking for a great place to buy your next pair of running shoes I highly recommend you check them out.
By the way, if you are looking for a short distance race this summer Runologie is organizing the “Keep Raleigh Independent” 4-miler race at Dix Park in Raleigh on July 4th. Registration is now open. You can sign up and get more details here.
