Necessities For How You Run

While we all love the romantic image of stepping out our front door and going for a run, the reality is that sometimes it takes more than shoes to ensure a successful day on the roads or trails.

At the Ultra Running Company, we are dedicated to ensuring all of your running needs are met. If you can't find a running essential anywhere else, there's a good chance we have it in stock here in the store. We understand the internet is not the place to go to learn about and try a product you will be depending on to finish your race, run or walk. The leap of faith necessary to order something off of the web (whether from the next town over or deep in the amazon) is no longer necessary, and in most cases our staff has already done the research for you. We test and use products across all categories, identify the reference in each, and bring them into the store for you to touch, evaluate and purchase - all without having to depend on your computer screen or misleading posts on your favorite blog.

So come on in - ask us a question and test our mettle. We're excited to share our knowledge and the industry's best products with you, and can't wait to hear your experiences as well. Its always a good conversation here at the Ultra Running Company, and these running essentials are exactly what you need to turn your plans into reality!

Therapy Tools


Trigger Point Performance Therapy is the global leader in the muscle relaxation and treatment tools specifically targeted to the running community. Trigger points are tiny knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked.

Portable and easy to use Trigger Point products can be used in the home or on the road, and are available at the Ultra Running Company.
