Garmin GPS Wear-Testing & 1st Monday Group Run with Pizza and Beverages

Join us on March 6th and have a chance to try the new Garmin FR-35 and FR-235 GPS watches for a run. This is a great chance for you to put on a wrist based heart-rate monitor and GPS to see if this is the right next step for you. Be sure to arrive early, so that you can secure your test watch. Afterwards we will stay in-house for a post-run Q & A with our local Garmin rep with pizza and beverages of course. So even if you already have your Garmin watch, pop in and ask how best to use some of the options you have not begun to try yet. Get the most out of your GPS!!! Meet at the Running Place every Monday at 6:30PM. We leave for our 3 or 5 mile option runs at 6:45PM SHARP!!! All levels of runners are welcome. We have 8 minute milers and 15 minute milers If stormy weather is predicted, cancellations will be posted on the website. We do run rain or shine! Join us! These events are always free, so please feel free to bring your friends and family members. 

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.
