2002 BEST Running Shop

Marathon Sports

After years of outfitting die-hard and amateur runners alike from its outlying locations, Marathon Sports has opened a high-profile branch right at the finish of the Boston Marathon. Has success jaded the staff or inflated the prices? Not a chance: The salespeople still kneel down to eyeball customers’ gaits and find the perfect shoe for their stride; the selection is still excellent and expansive; the prices are still competitive; and now the locations are ideal.
