Terra Running Company opened in Cleveland, TN in February 2016. Owners Brittany, David, and Rocky Durkin have a combined 15+ years in run specialty and are a family of lifelong runners. Since then, we've been busy slingin' shoes, pounding the pavement of the Cleveland Greenway, and making friends along the way! We love to be the "go-to" place for runners in Cleveland to get the best gear and chat about your latest goal. Brittany and David serve on the board of the Cleveland Bradley Chamber of Commerce and Mainstreet Cleveland repectively, and our owners and staff value supporting other locally owned businesses. In addition to the store, Terra Running Company helps dozens of local organizations put on stellar running events with our race timing and management services. We also put on some awesome races, including the Cleveland Half Marathon and the Tall Betsy 6k.
"Terra" means land or earth. Terra Running Company seeks to prepare runners, walkers, hikers, and active people to explore the beautiful earth around them. Brittany and David choose to carry brands that share the same mission as Terra Running Company and help their customers keep an active lifestyle.
We are strong believers in the benefits of shopping locally. Where you buy matters. Locally owned stores are more than just the corner store. They are the foundation of our economy. The places where communities unite and ideas thrive. They account for 75% of all new jobs and employ over half of all workers in America. They reinvest in the local economy at a 60% higher rate than chains.
Spend $100 at a locally owned business and $68 goes back to the local economy. Spend the same $100 at a national chain and only $43 returns to the local economy. Make your purchases matter. Put your money where your house is and support your friends and neighbors. Shop Local.
