The Running Room is proudly a family owned company, which originated in 1984 out of founder John Stanton's wish to purchase quality running shoes from someone knowledgeable about the sport. New to the sport of running, John had a thirst for knowledge as well as a desire to buy the right product. This entrepreneurial retailer decided to fill a niche in the marketplace by opening a small one room store in the renovated living room of an old house in Edmonton, hence the name, "Running Room." The concept was highly successful, and has since expanded to over 111 locations across Canada and the United States.
Running Room's reputation has been built upon product innovation, quality and the knowledge of sport of running. Running Room's unique private label assortment was developed to provide customers with the best in style, functionality, fabric innovations and reasonable price.
The Running Room is truly a store for runners by runners. All team members are runners whose philosophy is that if you're out there running on the same roads as the customers, you can better relate to them.
