The success of any local business directly impacts the customers who are served and the neighboring area. The Running Store is an active, proud member of the Gainesville, Virginia area, and we are a strong advocate for the running and fitness community at large in Northern Virginia.


Reinvesting in our own backyard - through donations, referrals, student-athlete discounts, youth and adult training programs, and organized running and racing events - helps build and maintain a better, stronger community. We integrate ourselves and our resources into the local community because this ensures our collective future and success, and we all benefit.
