The 2011 Running Event

The Running Event was held in early December 2011 and awarded the top running specialty stores in the USA with 50 Best distinctions. There was also a manufacturer expo connected to the event at the Austin Convention Center and we were there to grab a few images.

We are sorry though it took so long to put this up, but with all these holidays it somehow slipped through the cracks. But here it is now.
