The Most Comfortable Shoes for Runners and Walkers

Lucky Road Run Shop offers a wide variety of footwear for all activities. Our goal is to cater your shoe selection to fit your activity whether that be walking, running or working out at the gym. We want you to achieve your goals with comfort and we recognize your shoes are a big part of your success!

About Our Company

Our store opened in June 2012 and we now have three convenient locations in Virginia. You can come see us at Midlothian, Richmond, and Fredericksburg. Our locally owned and family-operated business is managed by a husband-and-wife team, Jeff and Desiree Van Horn. They are a couple with completely different backgrounds in running and athletics.

The Owners

With a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Medicine, Jeff was an often injured sub-elite runner. His wife Desiree is a back-of-the-pack runner who enjoyed half marathons and obstacle events like the Rugged Maniac. Together, they have created a happy and peaceful atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

Why Choose Us

Our goal is to build long-term relationships with our clients. We conduct interviews and take the time to know your activities and the previous injuries you may have had. This is done so that we can help you accomplish your fitness goals and needs.

Loyalty Program

For every $130 spent on a regular-priced merchandise, you can earn a reward of $13. Our loyalty program is cumulative, so you can get rewards each time you shop with us.  Once you earn a reward you can apply to a future purchase.  We make it easy, our staff will set up your account on your first visit.  Having an account will allow us to save your purchase history for easy reference on your future visits.

Client Reviews

Becca Schneider reviewed Lucky Road

“I purchased some sweet kicks today. I was immediately greeted by a delightful young woman who learned my name and used it every time she addressed me. Even more impressive was her knowledge. She took the time to look at my gnarly shoes (they really are…they needed to be replaced…) And showed me why they wear down in certain places and not others and took into consideration that my gait may have even been changed from a back injury. I get the sense that this company prides itself on excellence, and they should! Will always come here for my running or walking shoes!”

Erin Young recommends Lucky Road Run Shop, August 7

“I came to the Willow Lawn shop today looking for a casual running shoe and left a lifetime customer of this shop. Amazing service, amazing experience, and amazing staff. The folks I worked with (Alexis and her mom, I believe) were amazing. I can’t say enough about the time they spent with me, the knowledge they shared, how personable and genuine they were with me and every person who came in. I will be back and I will send everyone their way.”

Kristina Serio reviewed Lucky Road Run Shop Willow Lawn, March 17

“We just visited Lucky Road for the first time today and it won’t be our last! Both Desiree and Jeff were outstanding, helping to fit my son for the proper track spikes. They were both very knowledgeable and ensured we purchased the spikes that were best suited for his events. I could tell they were genuinely concerned not only about his comfort but also his safety. As a bonus, they were both so friendly and fun to chat with! Thank you for such a positive experience!!”

Wendy Cannon recommends Lucky Road Fredericksburg, August 23

“Everyone at Lucky Road is friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the best shoes and gear for running, walking, and other exercise. They carry a nice variety of quality products, special sales, and customer loyalty rewards. You are treated like a valued customer whether you are a marathoner or a part-time jogger!”

Jackie Hix reviewed Lucky Road run shop Fredericksburg, June 2

“You don’t have to be a runner to shop here and get shoes. Our family isn’t runners but we are active and sometimes we have a hard time finding the right fit and the right shoe. Christine at Lucky Road in Fredericksburg fits myself and the rest of my family and we love our shoes. I love the time they take to listen to you, fit you, and find out what shoe you really need, what works best for you. We will be coming back for sure.”
