The Running Room was born out of a desire to have clients served by employees who would know more than a thing or two about running shoes. Seasoned runner John Stanton decided that he would fill this niche himself, unlike all the sport stores he knew. Stanton started out by opening a small, one-room store in the renovated living room of an old Edmonton house – hence the name Running Room. The concept was highly successful and has since expanded to over 72 locations across Canada and the United States.
Knowledge and Variety
The Running Room’s reputation has been built upon product innovation, quality and the study of running. The main products sold here are shoes, but the store has developed a unique private label of workout clothes, providing customers with the best in style, functionality, fabric innovations and affordability. The Running Room also carries a selection of accessories (stop watches, strollers, socks, etc) and even literature about running and walking.
Selling quality products is one thing: the Running Room goes a step further. In any of the stores, you will find an incredible number of services designed to help you get fit. Services on walking, marathon, half marathon and women-only running as well as training on running and 10K are gladly offered. With over 500,000 clinic graduates to date, The Running Room is waiting for you to join the vast movement aimed at improving the whole nation’s health. It all starts by choosing from the best running shoe manufacturers such as Nike, Saucony, New Balance, Adidas, Brooks and more, and it all starts right here.
