In 1977, a small running specialty store, the Running Center, was born in a packing house near the railroad tracks in Rialto, California.
Imagine a time when Nike was "Blue Ribbon Sports" and a running shoe was the shoe you did everything in. Imagine a time when running long distances could be done by putting on your shoes and running out the door. There were no technical hydration systems or pace and distance calculators. That was a long time ago, and the Running Center has emerged from that small store in Rialto, California to a leading source for technical running gear in three locations in Southern California.
