Appreciate how quickly we were helped with the crowd in the store on a busy Saturday. Staff friendly and helpful. Able to get my daughter some Topos and me some new Altra Torins. Good experience.

Went into the store having an idea of which shoe I wanted. Cassidy was incredibly helpful and had me try on a few similar shoes and found the best shoe for me. Definitely my new go-to running store in Durham!

Had a great experience. I needed some better fitting running shoes because my current ones were giving me a lot of problems and Natalia helped walk me through various shoes. She was super knowledgeable and patient while analyzing my feet. Unfortunately the style of shoe that I wanted in the end wasn't available (me being picky so not the store/her fault whatsoever) so I didn't make a purchase, but I am definitely going to return for all my running needs and highly recommend anyone to check this place out.

Great staff, always great service and fittings. Never been disappointed. Always hooking me and other high school runners up.

Awesome experience!! Just went in for the first time and the person who helped me was so friendly and helpful! She watched how I walked and recommended shoes from there, super knowledgeable. I didn’t catch her name, but she had an adorable service dog who was very sweetly sitting there the whole time. Would highly recommend. They are also LGBTQ+ friendly! 🌈 (side note: don’t pet service dogs without asking if it’s okay. they are working 🐶)

I've been a runner for well over sixty years but spent most of last year dealing with a hip replacement and infection. Just starting to walk trails again, seemed time for new shoes. Off I went to Bull City Running and was met by extremely knowledgeable folks who spent about an hour checking my gait, having me try many pairs as they then watched me walk and jog and made changes. They were very pleasant people to deal with and clearly runners with professional training and knowledge. Their prices were the same as on-line shopping. Of course I picked up some new Swiftwick Aspire socks. So today i took my new shoes for a four miler and was pleasantly surprised at how much more comfortable I was. Strongly recommend this shop for anyone who wants to ensure that they are properly equipped to enjoy themselves. UPDATE: Sept 23, '18: This was the store's birthday sales weekend. I'm into my third pair of shoes and that process has reinforced just how admirable the owners and staff of this store are. You will NOT get away with 'almost right', "maybe ok", "sorta like 'em". These folks want you to be entirely pleased with your purchases and will spend whatever time and effort needed to achieve that goal. They have a generous return/credit policy, and this is all on top of their pricing which is at least as low as the big national and on-line stores. In short, their skill and friendly service is "free" and a great pleasure.There is no sense going elsewhere. Each visit is a delightful experience. UPDATE: 6-5-21. Ten pair of shoes later, still running comfortably at 78, thanks to these great folks!

When I buy shoes in person, this is where I go. Totally worth the 55-minute drive from Sanford. The staff here know their shoes, and they're super patient. Try on as many shoes as you want. Take as many trips up and down the sidewalk as you need. Today examplified why I love this store. I walked in and said "I'm looking for a road shoe, no more than 6 mm drop, light stability with a wide toe box. Whacha got?" The guy who helped me immediately identified four models that met my criteria. Bam! Doesn't get any better than that.

I haven’t bought new running shoes in years and had a very good experience buying from BCRC. Natalia brought out approximately a dozen different pairs and even helped me figure out a different color option once I found ones I liked. I’ll be back!
