Help Us Give Back
Through our charitable arm, Do the Run Thing™, Fleet Feet has partnered with Girls on the Run so we can help more girls cross more finish lines. Why? Because everyone benefits when we support our kids.  You will have the opportunity to make an optional donation when you register.

Stay Inspired
Not sure where to start? Join our 5K Training Program and we will get you to the finish line. Or come see us at the store so we can outfit you in the best gear, talk about your goals and make sure you meet them.
