At Black Dog Running Company, our goal is simply to help you run better. For some, this is running without pain or injury. For others, it’s running faster. Or a little farther. Or with more enjoyment. We think running better is all of these things and the discussion needs to go beyond just the gear we wear.

We are focused on discussing the things that actually matter in helping you improve performance and reduce injury rates. Yes, footwear is important, but just as important is your running form, your training intensity, your recovery and at-home PT, and your nutrition. When you come into our store, we will address all these factors as well as your running goals to help you get on the road injury free and with more ease and efficiency.

With this in mind, we offer the following clinics:
