“We are excited to see Run.com go live as a key part of our overall growth strategy,” said Ken Gart, managing partner of RSG. “Building a national stable of the best specialty running stores will take some time. With this new site, its innovative concept, state-of-the-art technology, and memorable URL, we have a national presence with the flip of a switch. Our customers now have a 24/7 resource to learn about the sport and get the best gear in the market whether there is a store nearby or not. With customers increasingly shopping online, we want to be available through any channel they prefer.”
