The Kona Running Company 5k Group Run

Yesterday I went out to the new Kona Running Company store to run a 5k with the Michigan Running Club Group.  I always enjoy getting to run with new people and a new route so this was a great time to do it.

I got there a little early so I could take a look around since it was the first time I've been to the store since they opened.  Wow!  They have a nice selection of shoes and clothing.  They also sell my favorite trail shoes - Hoka One One.

The wall of shoes!  Look at all that color!
A huge selection
Before we went out on the run, we got a quick picture of the group with owners, Jill and Alan Whitehead.
We even had the MRC mascot with us, Tiger.  LOL
The course we ran is a 5k course they designed and is actually USATF certified.  How crazy is that for a run around their store?
Course per Strava
I also took a few pictures of the run and, as you can see, it's a run through the neighborhood behind the store.
I was following David most of the run
We even go by a nice little park
Excellent directions - cones turned so you know which way to run
Larry even had a cheer station and water station for us! 
We finish behind the store then walk around to the front
After we all got back, Kona offered refreshments to the runners and 10% off anything in the store.  They also gave away a couple prizes too!  We sure felt welcome being there.
Another picture after the run!
Overall, it was a great day for a run and fun to see some runners I already knew and meet some new people in the Michigan Running Club.  Thanks to Kona Running Company for sponsoring our weekend group run!

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. Didn't look like ideal weather for a race with that snow on the ground, will they use that route for a race later in the year, or just a TT?

  2. Very informative article, Which you have shared here about the Smart Clothing. After reading your article I got very much information about the Graphene Smart Clothing Online and it is very useful for us. Thank you for sharing this article here.
