Small Business Saturday @ The Running Place

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY – Saturday, November 28th

While Black Friday kicks off the official holiday shopping season with the big chain stores disseminating a maelstrom of advertising and special deals that often leave the little guy awaiting the trickle down, Small Business Saturday celebrates your local shop, the little guy who is committed to your neighborhood and your needs. THANK YOU for supporting your little guy this holiday season, throughout the year, and over the years!

*Mention this note at the register and pick a holiday ornament or key chain with $25 dollar or more purchase (While supplies last).


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
