Runner’s Depot opened its first store on September 1, 2000, and quickly became the heart of the running community. Since that time, Runner’s Depot has grown to five stores servicing the needs of all Broward and Dade County residents. The staff at Runner’s Depot are well trained to accurately and personally ‘fit’ EVERY customer who walks in the door. We are ALL runners and/or triathletes who truly enjoy working with people and love our sport. The recent expansion of our Davie, flagship, store has taken us up to 5,000 square feet. And, our Aventura and Coral Springs stores have just been expanded to over 3,000 square feet. This gives us more room to fit and serve you comfortably, more room for the newest, most-innovative products, and more room for clinics and experts to keep you running strong and injury-free!
We carry all the newest technology in running shoes, apparel, and accessories. Our goal is to be considered one of the best running stores in the country. We are well on our way, being voted one of the Top 25 Running Stores in America by Runner’s World Magazine. Runner’s Depot was also named one of the Top 50 Running Stores in America for 5 straight years by the Running Network and Formula 4 Media, Inc.
The Runner’s Depot staff has over 100 years of combined running experience. Whether you are an elite runner, an age-group racer, or a recreational runner who hits the treadmill once in awhile at the gym, we know how important it is to fit you in the right shoe. Our goal is to make every customer feel welcome and comfortable in our store whether you have been running all your life or are just starting out!
We carry a full line of running and walking shoes, including Brooks, Asics, Saucony, Nike, New Balance, Newton, Mizuno, inov-8, and Hoka One One. We have the most complete selection of training shoes, lightweight trainers, minimalist shoes, road racing flats, track and cross country spikes and “after the run” sandals in the area. And, we promise to have shoes that fit your budget!
At Runner’s Depot, we take the guesswork out of buying running shoes. We will watch you walk and run, analyze your foot type, check the fit, and recommend shoes that will keep your feet feeling great. We encourage you to take the shoes for a test run outside, or on our treadmill. Our treadmills are equipped with a video camera and big-screen HDTV so you can watch your own stride as we analyze it. We are well known for our expertise in putting runners and walkers in the right footwear.
Apparel also makes a huge difference when you’re working out! Synthetic fabrics like Cool-Max and Dri-Fit wick perspiration away from your skin and help the perspiration evaporate quicker, keeping you drier on your runs. We carry a full selection of shorts, tanks, bras, tech tops, pants, tights and jackets from Nike, New Balance, Brooks, North Face, Moving Comfort, Louis Garneau, DeSoto, CW-X, TYR, and more. You CAN look good and feel good while working out!
Runner’s Depot also carries all the accessories you could possibly need, including GPS watches, Timex watches, heart rate monitors, elastic laces, socks, pedometers, sun glasses, running jewelry, gear bags, water belts, reflective gear, hats, gloves, insoles, training gear, injury and prevention needs, Bodyglide, Endurox & Accelerade, blocks, gels, and a full line of energy bars, running books, running logs, magazines, and gift cards.
Our race information center is complete with local, regional and national race applications. You can even pre-register for most local races right at our store, picking up your number and t-shirt packet in advance – a great time and money saver on race day morning!
Runner’s Depot hosts several group training runs each week. These workouts are geared towards improving race times and fitness levels at all distances. Whether you’re a member of our training team or not, we are always happy to answer your training questions or recommend someone who can.
We also offer a women’s-only run/walk program – Women On The Move. If you are just starting out in the sport or getting back into it, this is a great program for you! Or, ask about one of our RRCA running clubs, the Gold Coast Runners or the Miami Road Runner’s Club. These groups offer a host of training partners at all levels of ability and a wealth of running experience!
