"Fleet are the feet, serene in the spirit of the runner."

– Fleet Feet co-founder Sally Edwards

Created first in 1976 by Fleet Feet co-founders Elizabeth Jansen (left) and Sally Edwards (right), Fleet Feet Running Club defined a group of people associated together not by how fast or far they ran, but by the spirit and passion they displayed in doing so. 

FLASH FORWARD TO TODAY.

Fleet Feet Running Club is back for everyone. No matter where you are on your running journey, there's a program that is:

  • Led by passionate and knowledgeable coaches
  • Championed by dedicated and magnetic mentors
  • Guided by the most relevant safety standards
  • Supported by the coolest partners and brands
  • Fueled by the determination of its participants

No matter where you are on your running journey, we have a program and group to run with you.

NEW FOR 2018

ALL LEVELS. EVERY SURFACE. ANY DISTANCE. 

The beauty of running is that it can be done in a variety of places, by people of all abilities, at distances both short and long. The programs available through Fleet Feet Running Club reflect that, covering all levels, every surface, and any distance. 

EARN YOUR BADGE

We believe all your hard work and effort deserve a symbol of achievement, which is why all Fleet Feet Running Club members will earn a badge after completion of any of our programs. Adorned with the current year, each badge features an original design specific to that program.
