Nashville Running Company was born out of the love of running and the East Nashville area. Owners Lee and Angela Wilson moved to Nashville in 2008, and in looking for a local running group, Lee joined the East Nasty Running Club. This all-inclusive group of dedicated runners reminded Lee of his passion for running and the devotion he garnered for it when growing up in St. Helens, OR. It became a great source of both love and challenge for him as he went on to run at the University of Oregon. Nashville reminded him of Portland, OR in many ways, and he realized that it was the perfect city to open a place that Nashville runners could call home. The concept of a community-focused running store was then created.
NRC’s goal is not only to provide shoes and running gear but to provide a place where runners and walkers can learn, gather, and grow in the pursuit of healthy living. NRC wants to be a positive influence in the Nashville community where all feel welcome – from the elite runner to the first time participant. We truly feel running is something everyone can do at any age and at any point to achieve a fitness objective. It clears the mind, strengthens the heart, and renews the soul. We will provide athletic shoes, apparel and gear to make the journey more enjoyable!
