    MINNEAPOLIS, MINN. [June 23, 2018] – Runner’s Alley has been named one of the top 10 running stores in America by Running Insight Magazine. This is the sixth time in the last 10 years that Runner’s Alley has been named among the top echelon of more than 1300 running stores in the nation.


    The award was presented at the annual 50 Best Running Stores in America® conference on June 23rd in Minneapolis, Minn., after nomination from local runners and walkers and a rigorous evaluation process including secret shopping, vendor ratings, and assessing the strength of local community involvement and commitment. This year marked the first time the event recognized a top-10 division.

    “The 50 Best Running Stores list represents the best that the running business has to offer in terms of customer service and community involvement, and we are so honored to be among the top 10 of that esteemed group,” said Jeanine Sylvester, Runner’s Alley founder and general manager. “We are proud of the work we do both in the store and in our communities, and to be recognized like this is wonderful.”

    Since it opened its doors in Portsmouth in 1997, Runner’s Alley has been committed to helping people find what they need to meet and exceed their health and fitness goals. Since then, the company has added two additional locations in Manchester and Concord in order to better serve New Hampshire’s active community.
