Big River Running is a family of professionals dedicated to performance and fit from head to toe. With a passion to serve customers by going above and beyond expectations, we work to deliver the best possible shopping experience with a high quality selection of products and service that ultimately helps our customers perform better, feel comfortable, and express their style.

COVID-19 update – In accordance with the governments’ stay-at-home order, we are temporarily closing all three Big River locations’ showrooms. Yes, we know running, walking and hiking are essential activities. We firmly believe that! But to do our part in our community, we’ll only be servicing our customers online and by phone. Our online stores for footwear, gift cards and Big River apparel are great options to continue to shop local and get the gear you need.

All three stores are staffed 10am – 2pm everyday but Sunday to answer any questions by phone or process orders for things that aren’t currently online.

It’s not an easy time to be a small, local business, but we know with your support we’ll get through this.

Until they recommend we shouldn’t … we highly encourage you to get outside when you can, breath some fresh air and continue to run or walk on your own. We’re still here to support you. We’re in this together.
