We Are Open! Starting the week of July 6th we will be open Thursdays and Fridays until 7PM

We are here for you in many different ways!

  • We will still offer curbside pickup and free delivery, as well as our virtual fitting.
  • We are also offering in-store fittings. We are open for walk-in business, but if you prefer, you may still make an appointment.
  • Walk-ins are welcome, however,  if there are too many people in the shop we may ask you to wait outside to keep our space safe.

What you can expect from us:

  • We will be wearing masks and washing our hands very frequently.
  • We will sanitize our fitting stations after each fitting and keeping the register area clean after each transaction.
  • If you are not comfortable coming in, but would like to be fit in person, we will have a fitting station outside.

What we expect from our customers:

  • Please wear a mask in our store and we will have a hand sanitizer station right at the entry for you to use.
  • Please keep a safe distance from each other. We will have our fitting stations spread out to help with this.

We here at Keystone Running Store have certainly been trying to get creative, while also still trying to help people in our community! We rely so heavily on the support of our customers. If you would like to get the real “Keystone Running Store experience” but are following the CDC guidelines and practicing your social distancing, here is what you can do! At KRS, we pride ourselves on customer service and fitting you for the right sneaker! Without being able to do it in person we’ve come up with an idea to have Chris Schmidt himself, fit you up for the right pair. All you need to do is send us some videos. Here’s a short tutorial on what to do. Once you’ve taken those videos, send them to us at! You should also include in your email, your information and any foot-related issues you might be having at this time. From there, Chris will make his best recommendation and ship the shoe directly to you. Thank you again for your support and understanding during this time! – Chris Schmidt, Bill Ehritz and the entire KRS Staff!

The Finish Line Running Store is Now the Keystone Running Store

If you’ve shopped in our store, you’ve experienced our friendly and knowledgeable service. If you haven’t, I invite you to come see for yourself what makes the Keystone Running Store a truly unique experience. I call it the Keystone Experience.

What makes us different? The Keystone Experience


Step 1 Understanding your needs

First, one of our fit specialists will talk with you to better understand your needs. For example, your current shoes may just feel wornout, maybe you are experiencing discomfort, or maybe you’re gearing up for a goal race.

We’ll watch you walk in a pair of socks to better understand your biomechanics. This helps us make the best possible footwear recommendation. Don’t forget to bring your old shoes; reading your wear pattern can also help our staffers understand more about how you run or walk.

Tuesday night meet ups, Beginners welcome!

Step 2 Find the Perfect Match

Armed with what you told us and what we saw, we’ll head to the storeroom and pull three to four pairs of shoes for you to try.

Step 3 Take Them For a Spin

We’ll ask you to take a few strides in the shoes you like best. It’s super important that you not only walk in the shoes you’re considering, but run in them too. That’s why we have a treadmill in the shop. Not a treadmill runner? No problem, feel free to head outside and run to the end of the block.











The Perfect Shoe Come See Whats Makes Us Different

  • For over 30 years I’ve been fitting runners and walkers of all abilities in quality, comfortable footwear and apparel to help them perform their best. I have a degree in Pedorthist Foot Management from Ball State University and I’m proud that the Independent Running Retail Association honored my store as one of the Best in America.

    Fitting you in the right shoe is not only my business, it’s my passion.
