Running Excels is not just a retail store. Sure, we have shoes, apparel, and accessories for purchase. But, we are also a hub for the running community. Our store is the place to meet lifelong friends. It’s the place to brag about your new PR. It’s the place to pick our brains about the newest injury prevention techniques. And to feel comfortable in your own skin, whether you run 50 miles a week or walk for 30 minutes at a time. We are here to be your resource, your retailer, your running buddy. We love what we do and so should you.
