Felt Like Cinderella in Bull City Running Co. I came in looking for some new running shoes, since my wife had a very positive experience at BCRC. I decided to let the staff do their normal 'routine' I guess, and I would go along with it. Man, was I blown away. Max helped me a ton. Informed me about which type of shoe would work best for what I wanted, eliminated some options, and took me through an awesome fitting. He actually laced up each shoe put them on my feet, and tied them for a test. I literally felt like Cinderella. Love the shoes. Also picked up a jersey and socks and have been hitting it every day. Thanks!

It's like visiting Marathon sports. I came in for compression socks. The friendly staff helped me find a pair and gave me some tips for getting them on / wearing them. They also gave some first hand personal experience with the product that led me to pick up a sale pair. Best of all they didn't try to upsell me on something else. This is a specialty store, so you are paying probably a little more for expertise and first hand knowledge. I recommend the store for anyone that runs.

A great place to purchase running shoes!  They take the time to ask you about your running, check out how your stride looks walking as well as running and then help you narrow down options in shoes that might work for you.  I love this because almost always, it's not the most expensive pair that I wind up liking.  It's refreshing to have people assist you based on comfort and support rather than just brand / cost. I also love that it's local.  You see and feel it in the staff... no big company coldness and people that genuinely care.  It makes a big difference.

Very friendly and helpful staff. I have purchased shoes and insoles here. I am happy with both of my purchases.

This store is excellent. Great selection of shoes, as you would expect, but also anything else you might need: socks, nutrition/energy, sleeves, etc. But the best thing of all—and the reason I'll continue to choose Bull City Running Co. over any other running store in the area—is the service. The staff is very attentive and helpful in finding the right fit, making sure you give the shoes a short run around, and answering any additional questions. Well worth your time.

Non-chain, brick-and-mortar, locally owned/operated by running enthusiasts who _support_ local races. Personal service by knowledgeable, friendly people. Fair pricing, and just found out I qualified for a $20 loyalty discount on my latest purchase. If you value working with real humans, benefiting from their knowledge, and being able to walk in, buy something, and walk out with it, then support businesses like Bull City Running Co. Top marks.

Couldn't recommend this place highly enough. Went for the first time yesterday with my brother to get him shoes and my man Chance was incredibly helpful. Absolute expert, patient, super nice, and helped my brother find some shoes that he texted me today that he loves. Will recommend this store to every runner I know. A+ #GiveChanceARaise

Employees are all friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. When I first came here I had been having trouble with shin splits. I got fit for shoes and found out I had been using the wrong kind for my running style. I was able to try several pairs and the new shoes made all the difference! I’ve been back several times either when I need a new pair of shoes or when I’m looking to try something new to help with longer runs (gels, hydration).
