Come on out and support the Tunnel to Towers Foundation this Sunday in Tempe.
Rock and Roll 1/2 or Scottsdale 1/2 Marathon which is better?
My girlfriend and I went to Runner's Den last night to buy her a new pair of running shoes and a new pair trail running shoes and were helped by Gabe. That guy is freaking amazing!! He was so helpful and knowledgeable while being absolutely delightful as well. He is a real asset to the store!
10/10 customer service got fitted for some new kicks last week!
Is the group trail run tonight? I can't find any details...
I stopped by Saturday morning for a new pair of shoes, and I noticed that none of the old guys were working. :--)
Thank you for your help today with finding me find an off road trail shoe! I am glad I was able to find something that was not just for road runners (of which I am definitely not 😂). As you can see these were put to some good use within a couple hours of leaving the store!
Miss the Wednesday gang!

It's Jessie here! I'm leading a Vinyasa slow-flow type class for any interested people. Disclaimer: I think I've led 6 yoga classes total (all on Zoom!) Not a real teacher, please don’t hurt yourself!
Hubby and I are looking for good walking shoes. We walk 2 to 4 miles daily and our existing tennis shoes just don’t work.

Do you have shoes good for walkers?

A Memo to My Fellow Male Ultrarunners - Ultrarunning Magazine Last weekend I was reminded that there is still a long way to go in the fight for gender equality in our sport. On Saturday, I passed one of you in a race. You had your head down and were walking. You did not look good. When I stopped to ask if you were injured or needed help, the first words out of...

I'm going to try something I've never done before. I am going to willingly use basic math, so let's work this equation backwards:

Registration for Runner's Den Training Group is $180

If you happen to use the included store credit on some New Balance shoes you get an extra $25, so $125 total.

If you were to register for the half at 3TV Phoenix 10K & Half Marathon today it costs $75.

Neat! So we've already hit $200 in value before we get to the actual training.

On top of that $200 value is also 13 weeks of training group runs right here at the store on Saturday mornings, coaching, a 10% discount in the store through the end of the year, and the good company of the biggest and friendliest running group in town.

(queue Billy Mays impression) But wait, there's more! Registration also includes discounts for Runner's Den Scottsdale Half Marathon in December as well as Runner's Den Pancake Run in February.

Ok let's get back to that equation ---->

$125 in store credit + $75 value of 3TV Phoenix 10k registration + 13 weeks of training and coaching = the best deal in running

(I did say I'm not a math person, 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.
