Local athlete Bob Schwelm launched the first location of Bryn Mawr Running Co. back in 1991 because he wanted to spread his own passion for running. With his enthusiasm for the sport and more than two decades of hard work, Bryn Mawr Running Co. now boasts two locations, including the original near your neck of the woods.
The shop helps athletes to find the perfect fit when they're looking for a new pair of running shoes. The staffers can actually assess your gait and help you choose a shoe from brands like Asics, Brooks, or Nike that perfectly supports you while you run. The shop also hosts regular group runs every Wednesday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m. for all levels of runners, as well as an interval run every Tuesday at 6 p.m.
