New to running? Start here!

Running sounds simple enough, right? Put on some shoes, and go! But we know it can be a little intimidating to get started. What brand of shoe? What kind of shoe? Why do my feet keep getting blisters? How do I go from walking to running a 5k?

We've compiled some resources on this page to help new runners find answers. We have a Walk-to-Run program, articles to help you select gear and get to know our shoe fitting process and more. Explore the page, and don't hesitate to get in touch if there is something we can help you with!

New Runner Bundle:

Our New Runner's Bundle features some of our favorite accessories to help you begin your running journey. Ever get blisters or chafing? Not anymore with BodyGlide! It's odorless, non-greasy and basically magic. Sore feet after a run? Foot Rubs is a massage buddy that can go anywhere and help reduce the tension in your feet - this can help prevent injuries! Finally, good socks are a must-have for every runner. No cotton here (cotton absorbs tons of moisture and doesn't let it go!) - this Asics trio will help keep your feet dry, blister-free and stink-free.
