Phidippides is open for fitting! We are taking as many precautions as possible during the continuing pandemic. Fittings are conducted at an appropriate 6 ft. social distance, and all shoes brought out for try ons are cleaned and sanitized. All employees are wearing masks, and customers are strongly encouraged to wear masks as well.


 As a store, our first commitment is to the safety and health of our staff and customers. We also believe that now, more than ever, we could all use a good run or walk. Walking and running outdoors is a safe activity provided you maintain 6 feet separation from others.


Please consider making a purchase with us. Whether in-person, over the phone, online or video. We intend to continue supporting our staff to the best of our abilities. We also intend to continue supporting the running community.


Team Phidippides



The World’s First Specialty Running Store

This is

Who We Are

The authentic specialty running store. Olympian Jeff Galloway founded Phidippides in 1973 with the goal of providing a home for the running community.  Independent from day one, Phidippides maintains Jeff’s vision today by providing the community with the most knowledgeable staff, best service, and unique events throughout the year. Our shoe selection is curated by the staff – led by manager and shoe expert Greg Patterson and based on the guidance of Gregory Sheets. As the world’s first specialty running store, we continue to refine the shoe fitting experience to ensure that each customer gets the absolute best feel, fit, and function from their running shoes.
