Is the Fall Training Group a little too good of a deal? It includes:

A $100 store credit. Or $125 if you happen to spend it on New Balance shoes. So $100 or $125 so far.

An entry to 3TV Phoenix 10K & Half Marathon. It costs $80 to register for the half if you were to sign up right now. Alrighty so that's a $180/$205 value.

So it sounds like it pays for itself immediately before you get to the, you know, actual training... and all of the other stuff? Is that right?

Our Story

Voted one of America’s top ten running stores and the “Best of Phoenix,” Runner’s Den has been a pillar of the Arizona running community since its doors opened in 1978. Runner’s Den is a pioneer in customer services, such as individualized gait analysis, injury avoidance/prevention clinics and group training seminars. Understanding the variety of options the athlete has available in selecting footwear, it is the ongoing service and expertise of our staff that sets Runner’s Den apart.

We believe that the process of choosing proper running gear is an extension of the sport and an important ingredient in assuring the athlete’s ability to accumulate injury-free miles. We encourage everyone to use our knowledge gained from thousands of miles of training and racing to enhance their own running experience.

We pride ourselves in offering the best possible service to each and every customer. Whether you are trying to lose weight, get past an injury, run your first marathon or make your high school track team, we are here to help in whatever way we can. When looking for shoes, our staff will perform a full gait analysis so be prepared to go outside with us for a little run or walk. Once we have identified what type of foot strike you have, you will be presented with a choice of several models that we believe will work for you. The process usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes, so please allow enough time.

For the last 40+ years, your success and satisfaction has been our number one priority and everyone here at Runner’s Den wants to help you accomplish your running and walking goals.
