Our History

Three Rivers Running Company opened in early 2004 on Covington Road in Fort Wayne. The company was created to provide the most innovative products and highest quality customer service to meet the needs of walkers and runners in Northeast Indiana and surrounding areas.

Since then, we have moved locations twice to better meet the needs of our growing market. Our current facility, located at 4039 North Clinton Street, allows us to enhance our products, service, and involvement in the local community.
