BOULDER RUNNING, BOULDER RUNNING COMPANY

This update to our store is our gift back to our loyal customers, for without them we are not Boulder Running Company,” said Greg Beidler , JackRabbit, Senior VP of Stores, Operations, Distribution, JackRabbit.
The newly renovated store is a celebration of running and of the importance of running to the Boulder community.

You’ll find the BRC troops out every Saturday supporting the South Boulder parkrun while hosting barre on the rooftop, and yoga on the patio. Boulder runners deserve an inspiring location to call their ‘home’.
