What’s New

We're Back

We are beyond excited to announce that The Running Place opened on Friday, June 5th following Delaware County's move into the "Yellow Phase" of Governor Wolf's planned reopening. For both the safety of customers and staff, we've had to make adjustments to our normal in-store experience. Follow below for a list of changes you can expect on your next visit:

Appointments - To better control the number of people in our store, we are asking customers to contact us via phone (610-353-8826) or by email (therunningplace@gmail.com) to schedule an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled in 30 minute increments. We will get back to you as quickly as possible to confirm your request.

Walk up service - Walk ups will still be permitted but there may be a waiting period with preference given to those with appointments.

Curbside Pickup - We will still be offering delivery and curbside pickup as well as free shipping for anyone who doesn’t require an in store fitting.

Masks - All customers are required to wear a mask during their visit to The Running Place. Employees will be masked as well throughout their shift to ensure the safest possible experience.

Hand Cleaning - All customers will be required to use our hand cleaning station located at the entrance of the store before entering.

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!

-Ken , Bill , and Crew

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
