Our Branford store is the flagship of all sound RUNNER locations. Julie and Bob Francis opened the doors in November of 2001 to service the growing running community. The store is located in Branford’s beautiful town center and is the epicenter of the annual Branford Road Race. Our Branford location boasts a colorful history, once known as Collins & Freeman, maintaining the look and feel of it’s prior inhabitants. A tin ceiling, floors filled with holes that cables once fed and the original Collins & Freeman garnish the space.

Amy Parker

Store Manager

Amy never ran until the age of 36 and instantly loved it! Soon after, she trained for a 5K. At the start of the race she went out with the wrong group and ended up running a 20K with 5K of training! OOPS! ---- # OF YEARS WITH SR: 8 ---- FAVORITE WINE: Red bland. ----MOST UNIQUE THINK ABOUT YOUR STORE: The building that the store resides in is almost 100 years old and was once a hardware store, Collins and Freeman. It is garnished with a tin ceiling, has holes in the floor where wire and rope were once fed, and still has the original sign hanging in the store.
