SUPER FIRST MONDAY - Monday, March 2nd

On March 2nd, join us for a “Super First Monday!” What makes this particular Monday super? We will not only have our typical fun run and first Monday pizza, but we will also have our New Balance rep on hand with a brand-new shoe to wear test: the 880v10. But wait, there’s more! Dr. David Baxter, D.O., will log some miles with us and present a post-run “Ask the Doctor” talk. This is a great time to pick a doctor’s brain as we head into the spring running season with the Love Run, Hot Chocolate Run, Broad Street, and various other races approaching quickly. Dr. Baxter is a sports medicine physician with the Crozer-Keystone Health System, and an accomplished runner in his own right. Pop in for the run, stay for his talk, and pick up some good tips to help get you to the starting line and beyond better than ever before.


The Right Foot Forward Your Experience

At The Running Place, our goal is to ensure that you not only receive the right shoes, but also understand the reasons behind the choice. We provide free consultations, where we perform a gait analysis, inspect your worn out shoes for telling wear patterns, and talk with you about any injury history. All of this information helps us determine what shoe type is best for you.


Every journey begins with the first step. Before you take that first step, make sure you have the right shoes to get you where you are going. There are high arches, flat arches, and all heights in between. Some feet are rigid and some are flexible. There are different categories of shoes - different foot types are more comfortable and perform better in the right category. We will help you determine your foot type and which category best suits your needs.
