The 44th Annual Radnor Run

The Radnor Run is a healthy and fun fitness event for the whole family.

The event tradition is the 5-Mile Run, a USA Track & Field sanctioned and certified timed road race through scenic backroads of Wayne, PA. Known to be a beautiful yet challenging course, the Radnor Run attracts runners from around the area for this fun & festive annual race. The race starts and finishes at the Radnor Township Building in Wayne, PA.

The morning also includes a NEW 2-Mile Trail Walk for all ages. The Trail Walk is stroller and wheelchair accessible and links onto the Radnor Trail for the bulk of the 2 miles.

An un-timed ½ Mile Kids Fun Run for kids age 12 & Under will take place as well, with medals for all who finish. Bring the whole family for fun fall festivities! All proceeds from the event benefit the American Lung Association in PA.

The funds raised helps the American Lung Association provide important research and education right here in this region. Some of these include lung cancer research, asthma education for children and adults, clean air in schools, and smoking prevention/cessation for teens and adults.

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.
