At the end of the 30 days, the TOP THREE runners with the most points will win some great prizes. (details to come, but the top prize is some serious booty).

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!

The Road to Rio

Kingston native Dylan Wykes made his Olympic debut in the men's marathon at the 2012 London Summer Games. He posted a top-20 finish with a time of 2:15:26, making him the first Canadian to cross the line in the grueling heat.

Now Dylan has set his sights on Rio 2016 and the Canadian marathon record. Help us support Dylan as he strives to make history as the fastest Canadian marathoner of all time. Your donation will help cover Dylan's training and living costs, including his travel expenses as he competes and represents Canada at marquee races around the globe.

Donate online by using the PayPal button below, or in person at Runners' Choice (56 Brock Street, Kingston, ON) or any of the three branches of the Kingston Community Credit Union.
