Honored by the 50 Best Running Stores in America, Fleet Feet Spokane recently earned a spot in the top four running specialty shops in the nation. The annual award has been around since 2008, and it’s among the most prestigious accolades that a store can earn. Based on a 32-point list of criteria, shops are secretly judged by things like staff experience, fit knowledge, purchase details, store appearance, and more. In a Facebook post from the awards ceremony in Minnesota, store co-owner, Wade Pannell, wrote, “It’s all thanks to you, Spokane. We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful community of walkers and runners at home. We leave Minneapolis with full hearts and excited for the future of running in our city!” Fleet Feet Spokane supports the Flying Irish Running Club and hosts numerous running programs from their two locations.
