Our enthusiastic and well-trained staff is available to assist you no matter the type of walker or runner you are.


As a specialty store, we offer you unmatched service and attention. The best part? It doesn't cost more!  Sometimes "specialty store" gets equated with higher prices.  This isn't true at Morgantown Running.  We don't mark our prices up, and that's that.

Besides playing tag in the backyard, Kelly's first running memories come from middle school sprints, hurdles, and field events. Fast forward to college and she developed into distance-running nerd! A recent grad from WVU, she couldn't see herself leaving the Morgantown area and giving up her running goals and dreams just yet.
