Jon grew up in Rochester, not far from where he opened his store, Rochester Running Company. He spent some time out west being a Golf Pro, before realizing his dream of being a Rochester Firefighter. A few years into Firefighting, "things accelerated rather quickly" and he found himself sketching out plans for a running store in the newly established College Town area in the city of Rochester.
From group runs, to cheering tents at all the big races, to interesting events like the Graveyard Mile and Unlimited Breadstick, you can always find Jon with a welcoming smile and a positive attitude soaking in all the glowious sunshine that is the Rochester Running Community.
Run Our City. Together.
