A Letter to the Chicago Running Community from Fleet Feet Sports & Ram Racing: Putting Your Needs First


Running is special for the way it brings people and communities together and we’re excited to announce a new partnership that has implications for all runners throughout Chicagoland.

For the past several years our retail stores, Fleet Fleet Sports and Running Away Multisport, have been serving Chicago’s running and athletic community with a shared commitment to educating, training and properly outfitting our athletes.  As friendly competitors we were challenged on how much we could collaborate in serving the Windy City’s endurance athletes.

However, recent changes have seen Running Away Multisport consolidated to one super store in Deerfield serving the northern suburbs of Chicago while Fleet Feet Sports expanded its footprint to cover Chicago, as well as the western suburbs, with its six locations. This has opened the path for us to finally be able to work together and blanket Chicagoland with the best retail, coaching and racing services conveniently located for everyone in the metropolitan area.  

Effective immediately, we will now have packet pickups for all our races at our own stores as well as at each others’ stores, making it easier for all our participants to pick up their race packets closer to work or home. 

Nothing else will change. We will both still offer the benefits of our sister entities; Running Away’s RAM Racing and it’s Hot Chocolate series; and Fleet Feet Sports’ Signature Races and Chicago Endurance Sports running and endurance training programs. We will both continue to bring Chicagoland the highest caliber races and running events in the nation as we seek to create ways to grow the RunChi community.   

But most importantly, we will both be making things easier for you, our customers! Thanks – and see you on the roads! 

Dave and Steve
