April 2018

We live in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island.   My daughter and I were referred to your store by her high school track coach.

Josh was the employee who helped us find a pair of running shoes that were just right for her running style.  He was very friendly, positive, helpful, and knowledgeable.  The shoes we bought have been great!  This is my daughter’s first year running track (she is a freshman and has never run track before).  She runs the 400 meters and is doing very well.
Also, Josh recommended a pair of spikes for her.  We didn’t purchase them while we were there because we weren’t sure if she needed them or not.  Once we found out that she did need them, we called your store to have them shipped to our house (so we didn’t have to drive there again).  Cody, another employee at your store, helped us this time.  He was also very friendly and helpful.
We will definitely shop at your store again.  It was a great overall experience.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.  Thanks for your time.

I highly recommend Fairhaven Runners for everyone, not just those with a running passion. The staff is knowledgeable about body mechanics.They have variety of shoe types, that meet the needs of the customer, not just selling a brand.

They carry superfeet, an affordable arch support, AND local company. They have Superfeet 3D printer technology for a custom orthotic, saving hundreds of dollars, thus helping average citizen achieve a better quality of life.

And they have a great return policy.

Make it your first stop, it will shorten your search for the perfect fit!

Hi Steve:

Just a little note to let you know that I really appreciate the excellent service that all your staff provide to your customers. My husband and I shop there often and we always find great products and very helpful people working.

I was in your store last week looking for some new running shoes that would provide me with a little extra cushion. I could have easily ended up with the wrong shoe or no shoes, but Josh spent so much time helping me and the perfect shoe for my needs. He really listened to what I was saying, he asked good questions, and put a lot of thought into what he recommended.

Thank you for providing a great store for us to shop at and for hiring such knowledgeable and genuinely wonderful people.

Best regards,

Sharon G.

I’m type of person who prioritizes getting the best bang for my buck –  Fairhaven Runners gives you this and more! They have REALLY awesome group runs, their people are knowledgable, personable and all avid runners themselves  – it’s a community more than just a place to buy running gear.   Currently I’m participating in their 30 day challenge and it’s been the motivation I’ve been needing to get back out there.

When you shop at FRW, you don’t just support local business, you support a mission to keep Whatcom county residents happy and healthy.

Thanks y’all for a great place – keep up the hard work!

Hi,  I have recently been diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis and my doctor recommended a pair of shoes from your store. The only time I had available to come in was just minutes before closing and yet when I came in, I was made to feel as though there no rush; the young men tending the store were so friendly and helpful. Eric was the one who helped me fit the shoes and he was wonderful! He let me know that your return policy would allow me to bring the shoes back should they not fit once the orthotics were inserted – luckily they fit just fine. Not only was the service outstanding, but I discovered that the price for the shoes was exactly the same as at any other outlet. Bonus!

It was so enjoyable to come into your store and be treated so well. I will be telling everyone how wonderful your store is.

Thank you. Sincerely,

Nadine Clayton
