Competitor Magazine Honors Runners High ‘n Tri - ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., – With countless running stores across the United States, Runners High ‘n Tri is honored to be named one of the top 50 best running stores in America. The announcement was made at an awards ceremony organized by Competitor magazine on Nov. 11, 2009 during The Running Event, the largest convention for running specialty stores held in Austin, Texas.

The nomination and voting was handled wholly independent of Competitor magazine and was coordinated by Formula4Media, which provides market research and analysis in the sports retail industry. The evaluation consisted of a year-long evaluation, including “secret shopping,” customer feedback and vendor relations.

“We’re honored to be part of the top running specialty stores and certainly in great company,” said Mark Rouse, co-owner of Runners High ‘n Tri and 13-time Ironman finisher. “I appreciate our loyal customers, who provide great support and energy at Runners High ‘n Tri.”

In Illinois, only two other retailers were named – Fleet Feet Chicago and Naperville Running Company.
