Sponsor Spotlight – Up and Running

On the second day of our 12 Days of Freedom series of blog posts, we are featuring one of our New Year’s Day race sponsors, Up and Running. The locally-owned running store celebrated 10 years for their Dayton store, and recently marked 4 years at its Troy location on 12 S. Market St in the downtown shopping district. And to top it off, they were voted as one of the top 50 running stores in the country for 2015, an achievement earned by only 3 stores in Ohio.

UaR has been a sponsor of the World Race for Hope for the past five years, and we are grateful for the other support that they provide, such as hosting our optional early packet pickup on New Year’s Eve, promoting our race on social media and donating door prizes. They also support other local races and organizations, demonstrating that giving back to their communities is an important aspect of their business model. Find out more about their community involvement here. UaR is a great asset to the local running community and the community as a whole.

Next time you need running or walking shoes, running gear or running clothes, we encourage you to shop at Up and Running in Dayton and Troy. You will find professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff at both locations who will be eager to provide the service that you would expect from a local small business.
