Salt Lake Running Company has been keeping Utah’s runners happy and running since 1995. Originally called Sporting Soles, the name evolved to reflect the community of runners that we are.
Our staff is comprised of some of the most enthusiastic and accomplished runners around. Owners Guy and Debbie Perry have assembled a staff of runners who are knowledgeable about anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and nutrition. In addition, we have experience in coaching, training and retail. Ongoing training ensures that we stay on top of the latest innovations in running shoes and apparel. Because we’re all runners, you’re likely to see us running along your favorite routes or in local races.
While we have experience running both track and cross country in high school and college, most of us are equally comfortable running with baby joggers and dogs these days. We also enjoy participating in 5ks to marathons and even triathlons.
Our products are chosen to support you in your running. We carry running shoes, socks, insoles, apparel, nutritional supplements, gels, hydration equipment, running books and more. We see running as a life-long endeavor. When we sell you a pair of shoes, we think about your needs as a runner—your stride, your foot strike, your foot dimensions and the terrain you cover.
We also provide a biomechanical analysis. That means we’ll record your stride on a treadmill and show it back to you in slow motion so we can see if you’re a pronator, a forefoot striker or a supinator. Best of all, it’s free! We’ll then show you the shoes that are best for you.
Because we believe that Utah is an incredible place to live a running lifestyle, we sponsor several races and fun runs each year, including the competitive USATF road racing circuit and the relaxed and non-competitive Sports AM running events, including our own events, the RUNSLC and Park City Trail Series. Because we’re interested in supporting young runners, we even sponsor some high school meets.
Whatever your needs, whatever your level of running, we’re here to support you happy, healthy and running!
