Best Running Store - Run N Fun - 2013 Best of MN

  • Updated: May 20, 2013 - 10:16 AM

Owners Perry and Kari Bach have been — pardon the pun — running this compact little store for more than 20 years, but they remain true to their founding principles of selling the best gear at a fair price. If you’re a runner, there’s no better place to find the right pair of shoes; and if you’re not, they won’t look down their noses at you. They’re as welcoming and helpful to a parent picking up socks for the high school cross-country team as they are to a marathoner buying a $100 pair of Nikes and a fistful of gels. And if the St. Paul store’s a little too snug for you, there’s always the more spacious Burnsville location. 868 Randolph Av., St. Paul; 651-290-2747, www.rnfun.com
