What We Do
St. George Running Center is a full service running shop owned and operated by experienced runners. We'll take the time to ensure you get the best running or walking shoe for you. So if you are lacing up for the first time or you're a seasoned runner, we are here to help.
1. Comprehensive Gait Analysis
Our gait analysis is used to assess, plan, and treat individuals with conditions affecting their ability to walk or run. We do this to help you run more efficiently and to identify posture-related or movement-related problems that may cause injuries.
2. Side by Side Testing
Once we have conducted the gait analysis, we can then direct you toward the proper type of shoes. We have found the most effective way, in general, to find the best fit and feel for your walking/running shoes is to test them side by side (one brand/make on your left and another similar, yet different, shoe on the right). You'll be able to try as many shoes as it takes, running outside on the sidewalk or walking around the store, to find the perfect pair.
3. Continued Service
We do our very best to fit you in the best shoes possible. The fitting process involves you running outside in your shoes to get real world experience in them. However, sometimes it takes a longer run to get things figured out. Don't worry, we will still be there to help. If for any reason you aren't totally happy with your purchase you have 60 days to return your shoes for store credit. If the shoes are still in new condition you have 30 days to return them for a full refund.

I got down to St. George without my running shoes so I hit St. George Running...Lucky me they were having a sale. They were extremely helpful and Fun! I'd been getting blisters on my last runs and they introduced me to great running socks... Which I LOVE and a better way to lace my shoes to "lock" my heal down so no more blisters.
I also got a great light for my night runs. Wish I could bundle them up and bring them up north with me.

We like to feature local runners and the awesome accomplishments that happen in our community. Meet Tia McGregor Astle, one of the happiest and kindest people you'll meet. Tia gives some great tips in this Q&A:
1) What is your proudest running...
1) What is your proudest running achievement?
When I consider the word "proudest," it takes me a different direction than "funnest" or "most miserable." Assuming that the person with the pride in this achievement is myself (and not my mom, because she is considerably proud of me in every single running event in which I participate), I would have to pick my PR (personal record) marathon which was 3:29 on the St. George Marathon course in 2007. That translates to a sub 8-minute-mile average, and I well recall feeling my body break down as I plowed down the course in an effort to stay ahead of the 3:30 pacers. I was 45 years old at the time and had been running solidly for 10 years. I have not attempted to best that time since due to having met my long-awaited goal in that regard.
2) Who are your running heroes:
This is no joke, and you have to include this list in its entirety, but they are (in no particular order) Cory Reese, Debbie Zockoll, Amber Holt Green, and especially whomever the person is at the very back of the pack of any given race, no matter the distance (double respect if it's his or her first race) -- that person who is a winner just by showing up and accepting the challenge of a race. Over the 20 years which I have been running, I am always impressed by those who set goals for themselves and then work hard to achieve those goals. It's just as big of an accomplishment for the person who crosses the finish line last as it is for the person who crossed it first. And that's what I love about running; every single one of us on the course has the same finish line to cross, and there is no discrimination as to race, color, religious beliefs, lifestyle, or gender.
3) What tips do you have for keeping running fun?
I say mix it up! Implement new routes weekly or monthly if possible, vary the people you run with, listen to a variety of music or topics, register for a few different races each year, and don't always wear a watch! If you want to sprinkle in EXTRA fun, carry a birthday cake and paper hats on the run to celebrate a birthday, stopping mid-run to indulge. Plan a post-run breakfast at a restaurant, or just head to the bagel shop with your running buddies. Run in races which encourage costumes! Talk about FUN and FUNNY!
I also highly recommend volunteering at races to offer you a different perspective. It's so fun to glean from all of the positive energy of the runners and other volunteers.
4) What are some of your running goals?
KEEP RUNNING! At my age, the competition dwindles drastically and now I realize that it's because it's much more difficult to stay the course (so to speak). I have recently fallen in love with trail running; it's an entirely different experience, which has come at a crucial time in my life when I have felt burned out with road running. Another big goal of mine is to keep running the St. George Marathon as long as my 85-year-old mom can still be at mile 24 sitting in her camp chair with a big poster which she makes, usually a rhyme and penned in calligraphy style, waiting for me to run (or walk) up to her and give her a big hug and kiss, with tears streaming down my face as I profess my love for her. :) She may or may not know that she is the incentive to push through that wall at about mile 18, knowing she is just down the hill waiting for me. I also have a goal to run another trail ultra.
5) What is your guilty pleasure treat after a long training run or race?
I confess that chocolate milk is a sweet indulgence immediately post-race. I also find that an ice-cold Coke is especially pleasing to the gut. At some point within the couple of hours following completion, I may indulge in French fries or potato chips (salt craving). In fact, why not round it out and say that In-N-Out Burger's combo #3 (yes onions) hits the spot?
