Dylan Wykes visited Runners’ Choice

July 14, 2014


Kingston sports Hall of Famer, Al Cantlay invited Canadian Olympian marathon runner Dylan Wykes to drop by Runners’ Choice for a visit and was pleased that Dylan was able to fit Kingston into his busy schedule. The Mizuno Running team also came to the store along with quite a few Kingston Road Runners. It was a family affair with a number of Kingston runners who brought their kids to meet and go for an easy run with Dylan to check out the Beat Beethoven route, prior to the June 1st Race.

In addition to enjoying a run, runners test drove the latest Mizuno running shoe releases, ate a few of coach Al’s homemade cookies and chatted with our Canadian marathon athlete. If you get a chance, drop by Runners’ Choice to see the selection of Mizuno runners in stock.

Follow Dylan as he heads to Rio for the 2016 Olympic Games on his quest to represent Canada in the Marathon running event:


Altra Running shoes now here!

January 26, 2014

Runners’ Choice now has Altra running shoes!

Altras are a fully cushioned zero drop shoe with a foot shaped toe-box. This means a level sole yet there is still lots of cushioning underfoot. The toe-box is wider to allow for the natural splaying of the foot.

Runners World described Altras like this:
“The sole is level because of “zero-drop,” … The design resonated with testers, who loved the extra width up front.
All of these elements combine to give you a barefoot-like feel but without those barefoot-like intense slaps of your sole against the road.”


Come by and try on a pair for yourself and see what you think.
These award winning Altras won’t disappoint!

All-Weather New Balance Minimus

October 24, 2012

We have just received the some great all-weather shoes from New Balance.  The MO10 & WO10 are built on the same last as the New Balance minimus trail shoe (MT10 & WT10) with a vibram outsole and a 4 mm heel to toe drop.  But this shoe comes with a weather resistant upper that will keep you warmer and drier as the temperature drops.

The MT110wr & WT110wr are the next step up in an all-weather shoe.  It features a weather-resistant upper that zips up over the ankle to keep debris, moisture & cold out!  It also offers forefoot protection from sharp rocks with RockStop while still maintaining the minimus light and low platform.

Two great shoes to keep you running all year round.

Come down and check them out!
