Shop at the Best Running Stores Around Tempe

Tempe, Arizona is not only home to Volta on Broadway, a stunning Decron community, but also fantastic running trails that feature year-round sunshine and unique desert terrain.

However, before you hit the trails, you may need some new shoes or other gear. If so, you can visit three of our favorite running stores around Tempe. Each one is just a short drive from our downtown Tempe apartments:

Sole Sports Running Zone

Voted one of America's “Top 50 Best Running Stores," Sole Sports Running Zone welcomes everyone from beginners to seasoned marathon runners. The friendly team boasts years of experience. They'll help you find the right shoes using a gait analysis system, and provide suggestions on everything from the right apparel to hydration packs. Additionally, the shop also hosts group runs and walks. Attending these events is a great way to meet new friends as you enjoy a fun workout.

Runner's Den

Named the "Best of Phoenix," the Runner's Den began serving the Arizona running community in 1978. When it comes to expertise, this store is top-notch. That’s because the team is made up entirely of runners. Filled with endless knowledge, each employee loves sharing their passion for running with customers. If you’re looking for new shoes, the custom-fitting process takes about 20 to 30 minutes. In addition, if you experience foot pain while running, don't miss the shop's injury clinics. Runner’s Den hosts these helpful sessions on the third Tuesday of every month. A podiatrist is always on hand to offer free advice on whether you should continue your workouts or seek treatment.

Road Runner Sports

Located at Tempe Marketplace, Road Runner Sports is another great running shop. It hosts group runs, as well as fun in-store fitness events designed to keep everyone moving. The store also features a varied selection of gear to meet all of your running needs. Popular items include shoes, sunglasses, and insoles.
