Coronovirus Business Update March 24, 2020

Shop Notice: Drop-Ship to Your Front Door!!!
Beginning March 24, 2020

Dear Friends,

Due to the Governor's Mandate and to help combat the community spread of corona virus, The Running Place has temporarily closed our shop.

However some of our shoe brands and Garmin are working with us, so that we can still get your shoes and GPS wearable to you. If you have been fitted by us before, please take advantage of this option and reach out. Our computer system keeps a record of previous purchases, so we can look up your 'old reliable' brand and type of shoe. To place and order please call 610-353-8826 or email therunningplace@gmail.com. We will reach out once we have reviewed to history, then call you over the phone to place your order. Please allow 24 hours for us to get back to you.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will be sure to update you with any changes to our current policy.

Be safe, and take care. Sincerely,

Bill, Ken, & Staff

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.

Plenty of parking in front of the store
