First Gear Running Co. in Old Town will host a grand re-opening Saturday starting with a 3-mile run.

The more than 25-year-old store at 111 N. Mosley will open at 7 a.m. as part of the grand re-opening. The event marks Greg Reed’s ownership of the business since January.

The run, Reed said, is free and no registration is required. It is intended to promote the Boots 'n Daisy Dukes 5k run in October, he said.

After the run, participants will be treated to bagels and other refreshments.

Reed said the store will also offer giveaways to patrons throughout the day, including T-shirts, hats and other merchandise. It will also be promoting the Adidas Boost running shoe; a company representative will be on hand as part of the promotion.

The store will be open until 6 p.m. on Saturday.

For more information, call First Gear at 316-264-5500.
