About Us Since November 2007, The Running Store has been serving the needs of runners and walkers in the greater Northern Virginia/Washington DC metropolitan area. We like our customers to come in and not only shop, but also to share their latest running success stories or even lament about a current injury. We love the running/walking community and strive to serve them in the best way possible. We carry the latest in watches, heart rate monitors, tech clothing and nutrition. We provide free, thorough gait analysis on almost every person who walks in the door looking to purchase shoes. We know if the shoe doesn’t fit, you might be tempted to quit. Our training programs address the needs of dye-hard runners, those just thinking about starting to walk or run for exercise, as well as the time constrained who may benefit from an online training program. Mid-week track workouts, weekend long runs and youth training programs are also offered to ensure everyone can get the support they need.
