Fleet Feet Old Town to Relocate Next Month


In December, Fleet Feet Old Town will have a new address.

Currently located at 1620 North Wells Street, Fleet Feet Old Town will move to Crilly Court Plaza, at 1796 N. Wells Street. In honor of the flagship relocation, Fleet Feet is hosting a grand opening event.

On Wednesday, Dec. 6, the On the Move Fashion Show will be held at Second City Theater at 7 p.m. New winter running gear from brands Nike, Saucony, Brooks, Mizuno, North Face, New Balance, and more will be sported; three new brands will also be introduced at the show.

A portion of the fashion show ticket proceeds benefit Chicago Run, a local charity promoting the health and wellness in children through running programs. Tickets cost $20 a piece.

Immediately following the show, an after-party celebration will take place at the new Fleet Feet Old Town location.

“We will have food, drink, entertainment, shopping promotions and each attendee will leave with a gift bag full of goodies,” an email from Fleet Feet says.

Fleet Feet Old Town’s history began in 1996 on North Avenue. Since then, it has moved twice to accommodate runner’s needs in the area.

The store has “a continuing effort to gain the space to host seminars, fun runs and special events and best serve the vibrant Chicago running community,” its website says.

Holly’s running career began in high school; after being bummed about not making the volleyball team her sophomore year, she decided to join some of her middle school friends on the cross country team. She also did track in the fall, where the 1600 m race was her niche. Since then, she has run several shorter distance races and two half marathons. Her goal for 2017 is to try a triathlon, and eventually do the Chicago Marathon. She graduated from Illinois State University in May 2016 with a degree in journalism.

Working at Chicago Athlete, Holly has been able to explore photography a lot more, which is one of her main hobbies. She enjoys taking photos at endurance races, and is also passionate about nature photography and portraiture.
