About Run For Your Life

Your source for all things running

Our three locations serve the Charlotte region with the latest in running shoes, clothing, and running equipment. We go beyond being retailers.


You know what we love more than running? Seeing YOU get the most out of your running! Hardcore competitors, newbies, fun runners, 5K to ultra: no matter how far or fast, Run For Your Life can put you in the right shoes, gear and clothing for your pursuits.

Sure, size matters.  But that’s just one of the factors that determine the best running shoe for your needs.  We walk (or run!) you through the whole process when you shop local at one of our locations!


Run For Your Life Employees love living a healthy lifestyle almost as much as we love our local community. Seeing YOU happy and healthy makes us smile! We are always here to help educate you about all things running: running form, technical apparel, injury prevention and recovery tools, sports bras, nutrition, and of course, shoes!


Thank you for being YOU and for being a valued Run For Your Life local shopper. We want you to be a part of our family. Families share goals, milestone successes and personal bests with each other. Tell us your stories, this is our passion and we LIVE for this stuff; let us high five you! We appreciate you and love seeing you out on the road.
