Maybe you’re new to running and don’t know what gear you need to get started. Or maybe you prefer a deluxe shopping experience with one-on-one advice and suggestions. Either way, Big River Running Company has you covered with its new Big River Personal Shopping service.

Available at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings at the West County location, the store is now offering a free, hour-long, private session with an expert staff member.
