Part of doing business is giving back to the community in which we work. The Wasatch Running Center would not be here without the support of our customers and the community at large. I think the Wasatch front and back area is the best place to be a runner, and we are grateful to all of our customers for the opportunity to serve you.
Local businesses are in a unique position to give support to local charities and causes. We see and are aware of many organizations and events that are worthy of the support of the community, especially the smaller independent businesses in the community.
