Your favorite Colorado local running store is opening a new location! After 40 years of inspiring and equipping Colorado to enjoy the run, Runners Roost is announcing the opening of their 9th location across the Front Range, located in the Stapleton neighborhood at Quebec Square. “As the Denver metro area continues to grow and expand, we saw an opportunity to match that growth in one of the newer sections of town,” explains owner and General Manager, Kent Wories. “Being a community-oriented organization, we want to be close to our customers.”
And that is exactly where the new store will be; located on the corner of 35th Avenue and Quebec Street, the shop will be easily accessible to runners, walkers, and fitness enthusiasts in the surrounding neighborhoods of Stapleton, Park Hill, Northfield, Northern Aurora, and Lowry, along with travelers coming into town from DIA and anyone traveling through on the I-70 corridor.
With the Sand Creek Trail, Central Park, and miles of pedestrian pathways so close to the store, the Roost hopes to become a center for community runs, training groups, and neighbors of all fitness levels. “Fitness and a healthy lifestyle are becoming increasingly important across the country and especially here in Denver,” says Wories. “Running and walking provide a great foundation for most people’s fitness routines. When looking around Stapleton and the surrounding neighborhoods the importance of this healthy lifestyle is evident with all the bike shops, barre studios, and other fitness outlets. Runners Roost is excited to round out that list with a community running store.”
