Running Room is relocating to a smaller location at 1433 W. Lake St. The original storefront at 28th & Hennepin will remain open until the end of the year to clearance out inventory.
Running Room staff provide custom fits and watch customers run on a treadmill to see whether they are wearing the right shoe. Warm clothing layers are a big seller at the store, as well as water-resistant Nike Shield shoes designed for running in snow and slop, a staff member said.
The store hosts a free run club every Wednesday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 8:30 a.m. The club draws up to 25 runners, and the route changes each time depending on the preferences of the runners.
