The World’s First Specialty Running Store

This is

Who We Are

The authentic specialty running store. Olympian Jeff Galloway founded Phidippides in 1975 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 Kevin Graham and shoe expert Gregory Sheets. Gregory has spent his entire career analyzing, evaluating, and fitting running shoes and has served as a consultant to various shoe companies. 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.
