The Falls Road Running Store is locally owned and operated by runners for runners.  It may well be the hardest retail operation to find this side of the Great Divide...but the search is well worth it.

Our business approach goes much further than simply stocking a commodity product that can be found in big box stores or magazine ads.  Our in-store philosophy is simple - treat runners like we want to be treated when we visit a specialty store. That means leaving you alone when you want to browse, or guiding you in the right direction when you are seeking assistance.

Our staff knows what works, and can help you discover what should work for you.  Are you a big guy who doesn't need a motion-control shoe?  Come to the Falls Road Running Store.  Are you tired of the unknowledgeable staff in the malls and box stores in Baltimore?  Come to the Falls Road Running Store.  Do you want to talk to someone who knows marathoning, or someone who knows what it takes to PR in a 5K?  Come to the Falls Road Running Store.

Inside our doors, you will meet people who run for fun, who run for fitness, and who run to win.  You may meet milers and marathoners, tracksters and roadies, and even trail runners and some triathletes who are great swimmers and bikers, but hate to run.  If fact, you will meet triathletes who love to run.

Our visitors range from back-of-the-packers to Olympians.  Track coaches send their participants to us, marathon training programs send their participants to us, professional athletes come to us, and podiatrists send their patients to us.  And, by the way, a lot of people just walk in all by themselves.

EQUIPMENT OVERVIEW

Shoes
Our featured shoe companies are: Asics, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Nike, and Saucony. We will be carrying UnderArmour Running Shoes in 2009, and Zoot shoes for triathletes..  We also carry footwear from Adidas, Innovate, Keen, Montrail, and Soloman.  In the past years we have stocked such brands as Avia, Diadora, Fila, Pearl Izumi, Puma, and Ryka, but discontinued having them in the store because of low demand from the running community. 
Looking for narrow or wide sizes?  Even if it isn't in stock, we can special order shoes for you as follows:

  • Track Spikes and Racing Flats--Wide
  • Light Weight Trainers--Narrow and Wide
  • Cushioned Shoes--Narrow, Wide, and Very Wide

New Balance isn't the only company that makes varying widths - Asics, Brooks, Nike, and Saucony produce various widths too.

Our current size record holders range from an adult female marathoner whom we fitted in a Size 1 1/2 all the way to a participant in the Army Ten-Miler who we took up to a Size 18.  We routinely stock from women's 5 to 12, men's 7 to 15, with some extreme sizes occasionally thrown in for conversation starters.
