Largest Running Specialty Store in Hawaii
Runners Route was founded in 1983 in Pearl City, Oahu, Hawaii.
Many athletes in Hawaii because of the climate and natural beauty of the islands.
Runners Route was founded to support Hawaii's local runners.
In the 1990s, Runners Route moved from Pearl City to the now-defunct Ward Warehouse.
With the move to Honolulu, we were able to serve more local runners and visitors from around the world.
In addition, we are active every year at the Honolulu Marathon Expo with our own booth that helps the over 30,000 runners get ready for the race day.
Opening of Kapiolani Store
In December of 2006, we moved from Ward Warehouse to our current location at Kapiolani for store expansion.
Conveniently located just a 5-minute walk from the Ala Moana Shopping Center, we have been serving both local and customers from around the world since our opening.
going back to where it all began
Also, in May 2015, we opened an Aiea store not far from where we started.
With the return to the roots of Runners Route, customers who knew Runners Route back then we're more than happy to go back to were it all began.
This is the kind of local running specialty store we are aiming for.

From our customers
I always get my walking shoes from Runners Route. Everyone that has helped me is always very helpful, patient and pleasant.
Great service, the manager helped me picked out shoes, she said I should get a half size up, but my stubborn self didn't listen. Ended coming right back to exchange my shoes for half size bigger and she was really cool about it! Will come back.

Went to Runner’s Route Aiea with the wifey to try on some new shoes for her. She needed a new pair of running shoes because she’s starting to get shin splints, and her other shoes is lacking support. Tomo helped her find the perfect shoe! He measured her feet, did a feet analysis, and picked out a couple good ones to try on. He showed us a new way to tie shoelaces to help support the foot in the shoe which was cool! He was also very patient and kind with our two rambunctious kids. Overall, outstanding customer service by Tomo! You won’t get that kind of specialist expertise treatment from another retail shopping mall shoe store. Plus you get kamaaina discount on high end running shoes. Thanks Tomo! Aloha!
Just bought a pair of Asics running shoes here, couldn't be happier. Fantastic service- friendly, courteous and knowledgeable, highly recommend!
