Our Readers’ Choice for best sporting goods shop was a mixed field with a cycling, surfing, running and a horse tackle shop all competing for the title.
It started out as a bike race between and , but suddenly it switched gears and in a “Cinderella outta nowhere” move, sprinted across the finish line to win in the category of Best Sporting Goods Store in San Anselmo-Fairfax.
The Marin Running Company is owned and operated by Charles Yokum who ran track for Drake High School and knows the terrain on the trails of Mt. Tam.
He biked competitively in college and has run multiple marathons and triathlons which explains why he is the local go-to expert in running. Let’s face it. Even though he acknowledges that the most popular sport in town is cycling, he’s proven in our Patch poll that he knows how to win a race.
If you read his on San Anselmo-Fairfax Patch, he’s got robust content on his store hours, products and a short-and-sweet FAQ for customers.
Congratulations on a great finish.
And thanks to all of our readers for voting and supporting your local businesses.
