“I am thrilled to open Darien Running Company, even with the delays due to COVID,” owner Megan Searfoss said. “We are ready to serve the healthy, active Darien community.”

According to Searfoss, appointments online are the best chance to guarantee no wait time. Walk-ins are welcome if social distance space permits. If there is a wait, the store will take cell phone numbers and text so people can shop local at other stores while they wait.

Searfoss, a Ridgefield resident, is also owner of The Ridgefield Running Company.

On Saturday, July 25, regular free group runs will begin from the store at 7 a.m.
