Philadelphia Runner is an independent and locally owned specialty running company that strives to be more than just another running store. We are runners and fitness enthusiasts hoping to share our passion and experiences, strengthen the Philadelphia fitness and running community, and inspire others to start moving.



Whether you are walking 2 miles a day, running 100 miles a week, or taking boot camp classes on the river, we have the apparel, shoes, and trained staff to make sure your fitness experience is enjoyable.



With the guidance of our staff, there is no need to pick out gear and hope it will work – we take the guesswork out of the game and help you find the best fit for your needs with our fit process



We believe in good runs, good shoes, and good times. Our doors, like our runs, are open to everyone.

Visit us in Center City, University City, Manayunk or Glen Mills
