Philadelphia Runner is the spiritual home of the Philadelphia running community and presenter of Philly Run Fest. Philadelphia Runner has supported Philly Run Fest from the start including when it was known as the Oddyssey Half Marathon. Founded in 2004, Philadelphia Runner is the only store in the city that specializes in outfitting runners from head to toe. Through a robust community outreach presence, Philadelphia Runner has supported hundreds of causes, clubs, teams, races and other events throughout the city and continues to work tirelessly to promote the vibrancy of the running scene.
Cushioned landing, firm push-off: that’s the core concept behind On, the fastest growing brand in run specialty. On’s patented technology combines all the benefits of a soft training shoe and a hard and fast racing shoe; a radical development in the sports industry. Land on the sand, push off from the running track!
Athletes who have worn Ons and their coaches have reported greater muscle activation, new personal bests and shorter recovery times. These findings are also backed up by scientific research: independent studies by the reputed Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland have confirmed that the patented CloudTec® system substantially reduces athletes’ heart rates and blood lactate levels.
