Partners run with healthy business idea
Local runners have a right to feel spoiled since Gold Country Run + Sport opened its doors last November.
“I’ve been a runner my entire life and have lived in El Dorado Hills for the past 10 years,” said Leon Shahinian, manager and part-owner at Gold Country Run + Sport. “I and my friend and co-owner, Donn Cox, talked a while back and felt strongly that El Dorado Hills was crying out for a running-specific store. The more research we did, the more convinced we became.”
Gold Country Run + Sport sells the best line and selection of both road and trail running footwear and performance apparel as well as running accessories. Brands carried include Asics, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Newton, Pearl Izumi, Salomon, Saucony and more. The store also offers apparel by Lucy and Oiselle, two great brands of running and yoga wear.
The biggest difference between Gold Country Run + Sport and any other local running stores, though, is its free video gait analysis.
