    I bought my first pair of shoes at Run n Fun back in January of 1992, I think, it was at their original store in Apple Valley which they were only at for a short time before they moved to their current St. Paul location. Perry made me feel welcome and as a 33 year old non runner it meant a lot to me.He gave my daughter who was around 5 years old a head band which made her day. We have bought plenty of shoes and clothes from them as they are a great place to shop at, provide great customer service and they provide great support to the Twin Cities running community.

    Thank you for a good post that captures many of their strengths.

    I love Run N Fun! I used to buy my running shoes at a mall athletic store and always wound up with foot or shin problems. So glad I learned about Run N Fun as I’ve never encountered any of those problems with the shoes I’ve purchased there. Their customer service and expertise is top notch!

    I’ve always had excellent and friendly service at the St Paul store. I’m glad the Minneapolis store opened so I don’t have to go so far for my shoes. Same great atmosphere, lots of the same people.

    I love Run N Fun. Kari has always been a great partner to our Wells Fargo Run Club and has hosted several group runs at their store for our members. We will be there again this month on the 22nd. Others can feel free to join us. :-).

    We always hear great feedback from our club members regarding their experience at Run N Fun.
