How one local running store is responding to the COVID19 outbreak


Naperville Running Company is stepping up to support their employees and others affected by the pandemic.

The owners Kris Hartner released the statement, “These are unprecedented times, and like all of you, we are adapting on a daily basis – adding online and curbside sales, contactless home delivery and even virtual fitting. The most important step we have taken is to assure all of our employees that they will remain employed and fully compensated. They are family and we will continue to do whatever we can to take care of them.”

Store Manager, Marisa Hird said, “COVID19 created a running boom and we want to continue to live by our mission statement – to keep people healthy and foster their love of running/walking/being active, we’ve just had to get creative to do so!”

Any purchase big or small, whether it’s a gel, a sports bra, a pair of shoes, will help these local running store survive this pandemic. If you are not ready to show now, you may be able to contribute by purchasing a Gift Card for a future use. This will surely help them to rebuild in the near future.

Can you imagine not to be able to visit your favorite local running store once we return to a racing season? Let’s all come together and support our “running community” in anyway we can.

While many people panicked and rushed to the store for Toilet Paper, I called Naperville Running store to order my favorite gels. Curbside pick up was easy and I felt like a celebrity just sit in my car to have items delivered to me.
