Our Story

Founded in 2005, Up and Running was born from the simple, powerful vision of owner Susie Stein:

Anyone Can Be A Runner

Our mission is to provide a place for everyone - every pace, every ability - to enhance their lives through running and walking. We are one team, bonded by shared love of our community.

Up and Running is all about...


You will feel welcomed and appreciated in our stores, whether you finish first in the race, last in the race, or don't race at all.


You will have many opportunities to give back to our community through our year-round charitable events. You'll also meet new friends and be inspired to try new things!


You will be greeted by staff who are considerate, passionate and knowledgeable. They're experts. And they'll find the right shoes, apparel, and accessories tailored to you.
