Meet Scott Dvorak. Scott Dvorak is a former elite runner, who with Scott Hichmann, founded the Charlotte Running Company in 2000. Scott also has an event company and is a keen observer of both the sport and industry.

Each year, at the Running Event, I would catch up with Scott Dvorak and ask him about the 1) top running shoes in his market, 2) top service by brands, and his thoughts on running in the past year.

Scott Dvorak is the first commissioner of the 361 USA Retailers Cup. We met with Scott at the 2018 TRE event to speak about the 361 USA Retailers Cup, and how it benefits the staffs of local running stores. The Shoe Addicts shot this video of Scott Dvorak as I asked him about the importance of ther 361 Retailers Cup.
