Congrats to Ryan Hess, whose Ready to Run store in Northwest Hills marks its one-year anniversary this weekend.

To celebrate, the shop will host a fun run at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, with prizes for the best costume. The overall male and female finishers will win a backpack stuffed with goodies, and the runner who most accurately predicts his or her finish time (without checking a watch or other timing device) gets a prize too.

If you don’t want to race, you can still test drive shoes from New Balance, Mizuno, Brooks and Asics or try products from 2XU Compression Run, FuelBelt, Drymax Socks, PowerBar, Bonk Breakers and Nuun Hydration. Snap Kitchen will give out post-race samples, too.

The store is located at 3616 Far West Boulevard.
