What customers are saying….

“I don’t even know where to start! The lady that helped us was so personable and honest and educated. She didn’t try to sell me a price tag. She sold me a great shoe. She was helpful and inquisitive asking all the right questions! Patient with my toddler and amazing with my teenage son. Came in there worried about buying one pair of shoes $$$ and left buying two. Life long customer in the making here!”

“The Loudoun Street Mile every May is a fantastic event. Runners’ Retreat even went out of their way to mail me my award and included a hand written note to boot! Wow! How kind and what what unmatched hospitality. Thank you Runners’ Retreat for doing what you do.”

What a GREAT buying experience for an investment in my feet! The sales lady was not pushy. She was more interested in finding the perfect shoe to suit me. I loved my Altras’ so much I walked out the store with mine on my feet. I’m looking forward to walking without feet, leg, or back problems!

The team patiently helped me sort through at least 10 pairs of shoes before finding the right ones, and let me take them for a test spin down the walking mall before buying them! They offer a 30 day trial period, as well, which is great. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable! I look forward to going back next time I need gear!

I came in looking for a pair of shoes to race a half marathon in. Mark was incredibly helpful and watched me run down the walking mall in several pairs of shoes to see which kind would work best for me. We eventually determined the Asics DS Gel Trainer 21 would be my best bet. My size wasn’t in stock (thanks big feet), but Mark ordered it and it arrived within days. The shoe was perfect for my race – it was lighter than my normal trainers but had just enough support to get me to the finish. I will definitely be coming back whenever I need new shoes.

I needed a pair of running shoes and I heard about Runners Retreat from a friend. I was immediately greeted by friendly, helpful, and knowledge staff. After sizing my foot and watching me jog, he gave me 3 pairs of shoes to try and found a great pair. My wife also picked out a nice pair of shoes. I Will be a repeat customer because of the staff and quality products . I will recommend this local business to everyone!! Very impressed!
