and then, fleet are the feet,
serene in the spirit of the runner.


In its infancy, running was dominated by men.

And yet, in 1976, two women—Sally Edwards and Elizabeth Jansen—both teachers and best friends, at 28 years old decided to open a running store.

In Downtown Sacramento, in the poorest neighborhood there was, they bought a beat up Victorian and opened the first Fleet Feet. They started a lot of things in Sacramento; they started the first marathon, the first fun runs, and the first triathlons. Being part of the community is at the heart of Fleet Feet.

After opening a second location in Chico, people began to ask about opening their own Fleet Feet ... and so the legacy began.

Over 40 Years Later...

The story of running changed from being an exclusive club to an inclusive community. When you walk into a Fleet Feet today, you will find a welcoming environment where runners, walkers and fitness enthusiasts of all abilities receive unparalleled service and support. Our mission is to help you find the right FIT in every facet of your active lifestyle.

Each store is locally owned and operated, committed to enhancing and growing their local running and walking communities. They offer educational resources and training opportunities to assist you in achieving your fitness goals.
