When we opened our very first Running Free store in 1980, we vowed to provide the athletic community with superior customer service. Though we have grown and changed in many ways since then, our commitment to our customers, and to the community, has never wavered. A visit to Running Free results in a familiar face, a friendly smile, and a positive feeling about shopping somewhere that you believe in - and more importantly - that believes in you.
Whether you need new running shoes, clothing for your first triathlon, or just good advice, visit any Running Free location or shop online and you'll discover people that are confident, knowledgeable, and passionate about helping you find what you're looking for. You'll also find one of the most complete selections of footwear, clothing, accessories, nutrition, and cool gadgets, at some of the lowest prices anywhere in Canada.
Every year through our Team Running Free sponsorship program we support over 160 local athletes of all abilities, and give them the tools to accomplish their goals and fulfill their dreams. We believe strongly that active community involvement is a way to reach out to our customers and to give back, by supporting community events, local charities, and collecting thousands of used shoes annually through our Re-Use shoe program that are distributed to less fortunate people here at home, and around the world through our Mission Haiti initiative.
