Community Involvement

At A Running Start, we understand that our business success depends on the support of our customers – which is why we actively support individuals, groups and causes that impact and serve our community. You’ll find us participating in and cheering at local and regional races – and we sponsor and direct a variety of local runs. You can also join us for store runs, our Saturday morning running club or participate in “learn to run” classes, training programs and clinics conducted by staff members and/or product representatives.

We’ve also developed partnerships with professionals and businesses ranging from health-care practitioners (podiatrists, physical therapists, orthopedic clinics and chiropractors) to health clubs that understand the unique needs of runners – meaning we can provide helpful referrals and recommendations to customers when needed. We also support our local running clubs and high school/college track/cross country teams with dedicated clinics and product discounts!
