Thank you, Road Runner Sports corporate, for making a difficult situation tolerable. I know you are having systems issues at the Tempe, AZ location and couldn't process returns. However, they were happy to exchange for equal or greater value. They could sell me something, but not take a return? I even went back 4 days later, trying to be understanding of the situation and the systems were still down. This is inexcusable. At least corporate was responsive and helpful. Unfortunately, you have lost my business, but at least you have people at the corporate level that understands customer service.
Is there a customer service phone number that is working right now? Thanks
These guys are AWESOME! I placed my order on Friday and tracking showed I should receive order on the following Wednesday. You can imagine my surprise when my order arrived on Monday, 2 days ahead of schedule. Oh, and did I mention that there was no charge for shipping? Totally exceeded my expectations! 😍
You say 2 day shipping but I’ve yet to ever receive my shoes in that timeframe. I’d get them in the store but I waited for over 20 minutes for some to help me then they never came back so I left. It’s been a frustrating shopping experience for a long time customer might be time to cut the ties.
Went to your Elkridge Maryland store yesterday. I needed new shoes, mine were just too tight. I had an amazing customer service experience with Jerome and was shocked he had only been with RRS for 5 weeks. He put me through the perfect fit system, went over the results with me and hooked me up with a pair of custom insoles. He brought out shoe after shoe for me to try until I found the perfect shoe. I had the greatest conversation with him. We talked football, injures, my youngest breaking his arm with no tears. He had me laughing and before I knew it, I had spent an hour in the store. When Jerome was hired, you hired the best!
I ordered my beloved Hoka shoes awhile back but they didn't show up. I messaged them on Facebook not long ago and they were on top of their game, kept me up to date and were a delight to deal with. They certainly know how to treat a social media customer. Shout out to Adam for getting my shoes to me today! I'm excited to keep training for the half marathon now! Thank you! 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐- Will run to this site again to shop!
I’m so thrilled I was able to find Brooks Levitate 2 for women on your site!! They’re hard to find right now. All the fun colors and great prices!! Thank you for your timely shipment too!!
After 2 fantastic experiences at the Road Runner in Naperville, I will never go anywhere else for my shoe needs. I've been completely ignored multiple times at other sports stores, but every time I've come into your store, I have been greeted and helped right away. So thank you for excellent customer service!
If you missed early packet pickup today, head over Sunday 11-4 to Road Runner Sports in Laguna Hills. Enter the raffle for a free pair of shoes and enjoy some nice discounts on all your running needs: Shoes, belts, socks, gels, clothing and more!!! Road Runner Sports

Thank you to everyone who came today and brought food donations for South County Outreach. We will have collection bins tomorrow at packet pickup and Monday at the start and the finish lines. Please help fill them with food and school supplies!!!

Had my morning coffee outside today 😁 I love my Road Runner mug! 😍
Thanks to Ray at Road Runner Sports in East Cobb, Georgia for the great experience and the new trainers! They were terrific in burst training today!!!
I just wanted to say that you have a fantastic customer service department! I spoke with 2 representatives this morning and they were very helpful and pleasant. I was talking with Nicole and my cell call dropped, I called back and the second rep was just as helpful and nice (I’m sorry, I’m still on 1st coffee and forget her name). You have earned a customer for life!

Since its debut in 1999, the GEL-Nimbus has withstood the test of time and is currently on version 25 of the brand’s flagship cushion shoe. It's only fitting that the GEL-Nimbus is one of the many classics that made 40 years of running what it is today for us!

We're stoked to introduce two new colorways online now!

🏆 First of all congrats!
Whether it’s your 1st, 2nd, or 15th Marathon, you did it!
Take a moment to soak it in- regardless of your time, you’re one of the 1% of the ENTIRE population that made it happen!

But the question is often, now what?!

🤯 Guess what- you don’t have to do anything!!!

It’s okay to take a day or even a few weeks off from running.

Even if you have another race coming up, these tips can still apply to you!

⭐️ Here are a few of simple tips to carry you through to your next training cycle:

1. REST! - take that literally! Turn off the 4 am alarm to get that morning mileage in. Sleep, kick your feet up, and relax. Your body heals when you are sleeping!

2. RECOVER! - Eat like you ran 26.2 miles. Proper nutrition and hydration is just as important in your body’s recovery as anything else!

3. STRENGTH TRAIN! - Take time to step back from running to focus on strength gains! The time you spent with runs- replace some with focused strength training. We promise you won’t forget how to run.

4. REHAB INJURIES! - Remember those nagging pains you pushed through for the final half of marathon training? Rest might make them feel better, but rehabbing will help to fix the source! Do it NOW before the next training cycle. Your body will thank you!

✨ Super Star Alert ✨

Though she won’t see this for a couple more hours, we wanted to wish good luck today taking on the Barkley Marathons 🎉

For those who are unfamiliar, the Barkley Marathons is an ultramarathon held each year in Frozen Head State Park, but the course varies year to year 😮‍💨 Did we mention this stretches across 100 miles!?

An amazing runner taking on an amazing race, let’s all send some good energy to help her push through this 🏃‍♀️💨


Crank Knees x Jayna

🤓 Tired of those Cranky Knees?! TRY THESE! 🤓

- If you’re dealing with knee pain related diagnoses such as patellar tendinopathy or “runner’s knee” then exercises like squats or lunges might be irritating.

- However it’s important to build tissue tolerance while also building strength.

- These are some great options that not only minimize the amount of stress on the knee but still allow for building at the quad muscle.

- Again, start within a pain free range of motion and slowly progress to full range, then follow with increased resistance!

- Try these 3!

1. Wall Squats
2. Spanish Squats
3. Heel Elevated Squats

The Glycerin 20 is for runners who want that supremely soft cushioning that lets them free their minds and get lost in the run.

So what's new this year?

✨An updated midsole that features nitrogen infused DNA LOFT v3, Brooks softest cushioning yet.

✨ New cushioning and redesigned outsole deliver smoother and more stable transitions.

✨ All-new engineered mesh upper is lightweight and breathable.

Did Brooks just make one of their staples that much better?


Quads x Jayna

🔥Today It’s All About Strengthening Your Quads! 🔥

💪 There are a number of reasons to build quad strength:
- Knee Pain (Runner’s Knee, Patellar Tendinopathy, for example)
- Post Knee Surgery (ACL, Meniscus, etc)
- General Injury Prevention
- Sports Performance
- Improving Physique

🧐 Depending on factors such as strength, access to equipment, injury, or current pain levels, these exercises and their difficulty will vary.

🏋️‍♀️ Here are a few great options that isolate the quads in a single leg position. They can be modified or progressed based on your needs.


Jayna X Brooks Glycerin 20

Our Tip Guru Dr. Williams got a feel for the Brooks Glycerin 20 and was in love with the first wear!

What she loved:

💜 The lightweight design yet sturdy feel to the shoe

💜 The consistency- whenever a shoe is on the 20th version, you know it’s always a good choice

💜 A classic neutral shoe- I can definitely get in some serious mileage in these!

🧡 Remember, it's not just your body you have to take care of but your feet as well! 🧡

Tip Tuesday


- Runners need to be strong enough to run. It is important to be strong in a variety of planes and move well throughout various ranges of motion.

- These drills are a great way to not only focus on single leg strength, but in a more dynamic fashion.

- Focus on form, your ability to land soft, and push off through the foot.

⭐️ Try These! ⭐️

1. Single Leg Hip Flexion With Arm Swing
2. Single Leg Hinge to Knee Drive
3. Single Leg Hinge to Knee Drive With Hop

Jayna Tip Tuesday Motivation

As we near the end of the second month and we continue to help give you the tools and tips you need to be the best runner you can, our tip guru Jayna has this say:

"Just get there and just show up to do the work. Success doesn’t happen overnight. Not every day will be perfect. Workouts. Runs. That dream job. Life period. Whatever you’re working towards. It won’t always be a PR kind of a day. But if you show up, you’re already doing the hardest part."
