If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.

About Us

Crozet Running is owned and operated by John and Michelle Andersen who have lived in Crozet since 2003.  The Andersens opened Crozet Running because they are passionate about helping people stay active and get back to fitness.

Run Better

At Crozet Running, our goal is simply to help you run better.  For some, this is running without pain or injury.  For others, its running faster.  Or farther.  Or with more enjoyment.  We think running better is all of these things and the discussion needs to go far beyond just footwear.
