Shop Info An 11-time Best of Boston award-winning running specialty shop, placing emphasis on complete biomechanical assessment and gait analysis as integral components of proper fit and injury prevention.

Directions: Our northernmost store, Marathon Sports Melrose is also our newest, having opened its doors at the former home of the Runner's Edge in January of 2007. Located right in the heart of downtown Melrose on the corner of Main St and Grove st, the store can be accessed from the Wyoming Hill stop on the MBTA Commuter Rail's Haverhill line.

Parking is available in the lot behind the store off Grove St.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
