The Aid Station, Trails and Ales, the running store based in Auburn, CA, owned by Paulo Medina, announced on its website that it is shuttering its operations on June 30.

The running store opened in 2018 and moved in June 2021 to 927 Lincoln Way in Auburn, nearly doubling its square footage.

The message reads as follows.


June 30 – Last Day

It is with heavy heart that we write to inform you of the difficult decision we have had to make regarding the future of The Aid Station. After much contemplation and evaluation of our current circumstances, we regret to announce that we will be closing our business.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you who have been instrumental in our journey. Our staff, to the guys from England, Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Mexico, Ecuador, Peru, Canada, Japan, Korea and sonmany other countries and of course, all the locals that made this place a home, a clubhouse, our spot, my home.

Please rest assured that we are taking every measure to ensure a smooth transition during this time. We are committed to fulfilling any outstanding obligations and addressing any concerns you may have to the best of our ability. If you have any gift cards, come by and take advantage of our upcoming sales. We will continue to operate with our doors fully open through June 30, the Sunday of Western States weekend. After that day, we will pivot any remaining inventory to our online portal.

Please visit our online store and help us clear out our current inventory.
