Philadelphia Runner

Philadelphia Runner has been connecting, inspiring, and strengthening the Philadelphia running and fitness community since 2004.

This city and the streets running through it define us, and our culture is built on the idea that working out can and should be fun, and it is always more fun when you are part of a vibrant community of like-minded people. We aren’t the fastest runners in the world—we come from a variety of backgrounds, but we are all passionate about running, fitness, and living a healthy lifestyle.

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.

We run Philadelphia. We are not a shoe store. We are a community. Visit the University City location for Group Runs every Wednesday at 6pm!
