Experience CRC

Who Are We?

We are a locally owned, indie running specialty store. But at CRC, we're also a whole lot more.

A race host. A beginner's 5k training program. A marathon training program. A kid's running club. A cross country camp. A team of elites chasing the Olympic Trials.

An inclusive, open group that meets every week to share the miles. And we'd love for you to join us.

Born From A College XC Team, Nationally Recognized Today

CRC began as the shared dream of college cross country teammates Matt DeLeon and Eric Fruth.

Since 2004, CRC has been part of central Ohio's running & walking community - but our reach extends beyond Columbus, having been honored in 2014 as the Best Running Store in America by the Running Industry Association and earning our place on the top stores list in the years since.

Thank You
