Russell Sergent founded Fleet Feet Sports because he found himself enamored with distance running. He participated in his first marathon, the PF Chang’s Rock N Roll Marathon, in Arizona in 2007 and found he couldn’t replicate the feeling of endorphins running through his bloodstream any other way. Russell Sergent had found one his favorite relaxing activities. He founded Fleet Feet Sports because he thought that he could help his community get the best equipment and apparel around at optimal prices. He learned everything there was to learn about distance running gear and used that knowledge to help his employees educated customers on how to get the best gear for their personal needs. Today, Fleet Feet Sports helps many people on an individual basis get the support they need to avoid injury and run to their goals.
