About Us

Emmaus Run Inn

Welcome to the Emmaus Run Inn! My degree in pedorthic foot management from Ball State University and 30+ years of shoe fitting experience provides me the ability to help you understand how your foot works. My staff is trained to fit you properly and make you feel welcome no matter your goal. Whether you’re walking, running or just moving all day, we will get you in the appropriate footwear!

We have expanded our services in the past year and a half to bring you so much more. Not only more shoes, clothing and accessories, but also more group runs and exciting events to keep the local running community connected. As of July 2014, we have started our very own coaching program! We have three very qualified coaches who are excited to help you take your running to the next level. If interested, please contact us by phone or through email. One other great service we are proud to offer is our race timing and online promoting of your events. As many of you know, we have merged with Brynmawr Running Company, who offers these services. For more information, go to www.brynmawrrunningco.com in the events and races tab.

I believe we are the Lehigh Valley’s best specialty shoe shop. We pride ourselves in offering friendly, knowledgeable and good old-fashioned service. We have been recognized by Competitor Magazine three times in the past four years (2011, 2012 and 2014) as being in the top 50 running stores in the USA because our number one priority is you, and that is why we take the time to make your feet happy.
