The Fit Process
Shoe Fit Process
At Philadelphia Runner, our objective is to meet your unique needs. Whether you're walking around your neighborhood or training for your first half-marathon, we customize each fitting through listening, using treadmill and video recording to conduct gait analysis, and trying on a few shoe options to help you select a comfortable shoe to meet your needs.
SPORTS BRA FITTINGS
No matter what your activity level is, we carry a wide range of sports bras - from Brooks, Nike, Under Armour, and more - to support you during every workout. Stop by any of our stores for a bra fitting and we'll help you find the perfect fit for yoga, running or CrossFit.
Finding a pair of compression socks, sleeves or even a knee brace that doesn't slide can be an intimidating process. By listening to your individual needs and using calf and foot measurements, we'll help you find the compression products that support you best.
As the weather is getting nicer and opportunities to train outside become more frequent, consider running for a good cause! Local nonprofit organization, the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, is a beneficiary of several endurance events in the Greater Philadelphia Area, and they are looking for motivated runners to join Team MSAA!
The Benjamin Franklin Bridge is an iconic Philadelphia structure. With an gorgeous view of the city skyline, it's one of the main entrances to the city and heavily trafficked throughout the year.
We love running. If we had to choose a workout to do we'd pick running 100% of the time, every time. We'd run everyday if we could.
Last week, The Philly 10K, along with nearly a dozen other races in the Philadelphia area, launched #RaceLocalPHL. The initiative is designed to encourage runners to think locally when choosing their races (sort of like how Small Business Saturday promotes shopping at places like Philadelphia Runner during the holidays).
Happy Monday everyone! It's Week 2 of our Summer Challenge and Global Running Day is this week.

Sure summer doesn't officially start until June 21st but we all know Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial, official start to summer. To celebrate we put together a short list of 5 things we're looking forward to this summer:
The countdown to the Broad Street Run is on. Thinking about 10 weeks of training can be overwhelming so we put together 10 tips for 10 weeks to 10 miles.
Congratulations! You are 1 of the lucky 40 something thousand people selected to run in the largest 10 mile road race in the United States.
Last month, Nike updated three of their most popular running shoes - The Zoom Elite 9, Free Run Distance 2, and the Zoom Vomero 12. Our staff had a chance to test the brand new shoes on a demo run around Center City, even stopping to catch a panoramic view of the city at the Observation Deck at One Liberty Place.
Check out photos from our run and view details about each shoe below.
