The Running Forum March 25th, 7PM

Two of Philadelphia's biggest distance races, the Broad Street Run 10-miler and The Love Run Half Marathon, are right around the corner. It’s during the last 4-6 weeks before big events like this when lots of questions come up about training, nutrition, injury, and race strategy. What better way to have local experts answer your questions than over beer and pizza! Come join The Running Place owner Bill Frawley, coach/exercise scientist Jason Kilderry, and physical therapist Jennifer Skaling in an informal discussion to answer all your running-related questions as you prepare for race day.

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.
