The Austin Trail Running Company is one of the first specialty run stores in Texas to specialize in trail running, obstacle course racing and functional fitness gear. We have well over a decade of experience in trail running with 10's of thousands of miles run all over the world.
All of the gear we bring into the store is tested, so that we know it's high quality and it will perform as you would want and expect it to for your training workouts, races or competitions. We prefer working with specialty niche companies that focus on quality and innovation for their product design.
The Austin Trail Running Company began in the summer of 2013 over a few runs and a few beers. A pop-up store soon started appearing at Tejas Trails races in 2014 and the lease was signed in May of 2014 for our space. Construction took longer than expected (when does it not!) and the doors officially opened on the brick and mortar store on January 2, 2016.
We are located in the Austinville 78750 shopping plaza with Soup Peddlar, Papalote Taco House and Birds Barbershop.
