Downtowners are about to get a new runner's high, and they won't need to trek for miles to experience it.

Later this month, OK Runner will open up a new store, and this one is going into a space with a long retail history on Oklahoma City's historic Automobile Alley.

OK Runner is owned by Gus and Tim Thompson, a father and son. Together with Craig Thompson, a certified pedorthist who is another of Gus Thompson's sons, they opened their first OK Runner at 3720 W Robinson in Norman in 1995.

In 2006, the Thompsons opened a store in Edmond, at 1189 E 15th.

The Oklahoma City store at 708 N Broadway opens Friday. It will have a grand opening celebration on June 7, which is National Running Day.

Throughout OK Runner's existence, the Thompsons, the operation and its staff have supported community events backing worthwhile causes, including school athletics programs and the Special Olympics. Read the full article at NewsOK.com.
