Sprinting to Success

Cultivating a separate identity for Corner Store from its Valero fuel legacy is a goal of CST Brands, and one of the ways Corner Store is making its mark in the communities it serves is through its signature fundraising event, the Corner Store Country Run 5K series.

Now in its second year, the Country Run added two more locations this year for a lineup of 10 cities: Montréal (June 20); Denver (July 11); Katy, Texas (July 25); Syracuse, N.Y. (Aug. 8); Lehigh Valley, Pa. (Aug. 22); Fort Worth, Texas (Sept. 26); Round Rock, Texas (Oct. 11); Little Rock, Ark. (Oct. 17); Phoenix (Oct. 24); and San Antonio (Nov. 14).

Net proceeds will once again benefit the donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network Big Brothers Big Sisters, along with local children’s charities in each market. In the 5K series’ inaugural year, the Corner Store Country Run raised a net total of $1 million.

Convenience Store News was on-hand for the 2015 Country Run kickoff in Montréal.
