FootZone is Central Oregon’s only locally owned and independent running and walking store. Since 1995, FootZone has been the hub of the local running community, hosting clinics, training groups, weekly runs, and a number of charitable events each year, in addition to sponsoring local races. FootZone is a full service running and walking store in downtown Bend. To learn more about FootZone, please visit www.footzonebend.com.
We’ve built our reputation on selling great-fitting shoes. Over the years, our fitting process has evolved, incorporating changes in technology, the medical community, and the running industry. Since we opened in 1995, FootZone’s goal has remained the same: To keep you active and healthy in shoes that you love.

Good Form Running
FootZone has offered these free clinics since 2010 and well over 2000 runners have participated! Running easier, injury free, and faster is what runners strive for. With a focus on proper mechanics, GoodForm Running helps runners of all ages and abilities achieve their goals. We’ll go over the 4 points of GoodForm Running, do some drills, and take and review short clips of video to help build awareness. Clinics last about 90 minutes.
