Transports

Transports on College Avenue serves runners better than any other East Bay sports store because it’s staffed with top-level competitive runners who know how to properly fit shoes and other gear to meet individual needs. These speedsters also stay on top of industry trends, so they can clue you in on running shoes from minimalist to maximal, track to trail, and everything in between. In business since 1982, Transports consistently and generously supports the local running community through sponsorships of running events and organized group runs. Bonus: they specialize in swimming, too!
