Road Runner Sports is where runners and walkers across the region find their Best Fit Ever, and a community of support to inspire them to keep moving every day.

You’ll notice something different the moment you step foot into your Road Runner Sports store…high-fives, bright smiles, and stellar customer service.

Mike Gotfredson, Chief Runner and owner of Road Runner Sports explained what makes the company unique amongst other sports retailers is focusing on the best possible customer experience: “Yes, we have the best selection. Yes, we have the best prices. But what really sets us apart is customer service that truly makes each guest feel cared for and special…like family.”

The commitment to your Best Fit Ever also extends to your community. You’ll feel proud knowing you’re part of a family who’s given more than $2.6 million since 2008 to groups and school across the nation to help propel the goals of local athletes in the communities we run with.
