In 2015, and again in 2016, Second Sole Akron was named one of the Top 50 Running Stores in the US by Competitor Magazine - we take great humility and pride in this honor and would love for you to come down to the shop to see what makes us so different from the rest...here's a little about us here in AkRUN...
We're located in the epicenter of running for Summit County, on the corner of North Portage Path and Merriman Rd, surrounded by a gorgeous trail system, the Ohio and Erie canal towpath, and several of Summit County's Metro Parks inside of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
We invite runners, walkers, and fitness enthusiasts of all levels to come check us out and see why our 'sit and fit' process is the best you can find - every individual is different, and has their own needs. We understand that and will take our time to help you find the perfect shoe, for any occasion. Whether a beginning walker, runner, hiker, or local track athlete, we have the experience and expertise to keep you moving and keep you healthy.
Looking for a running partner? We meet at the store each and every Saturday at 8am (times may vary in summer), and head straight out our own front door to the Towpath, Sandrun Metro Park, and local roads and trails. Please feel free to stop in and check us out - we welcome all abilities of both walkers and runners to our groups.
