To the Austin Trail Running Company Community,

I have drafted this in my head many times over the last few weeks of days and nights. After many discussions, strategy planning, days / weeks / months / years of hustling, Peter and I have decided to close the doors to the Austin Trail Running Company.

It has been an incredible journey. I have learned more running a small business than I thought possible. For example, until recently, I did not know New Englanders had emotions! I will miss seeing so many of you in the store, telling us about your adventures from your first trail run, to your first ultra, to the Texas Safari, dog agility competitions, Chess tournaments… y’all are interesting, diverse and wonderful, so thank you.

Please support the local running stores to keep the community alive and best of luck with all your future trail running adventures.


Pam, Jim, Ty and Art
