Calling all runners, walkers, and movers and shakers: Local specialty running company Charm City Run is opening its eighth location in August. The new 1,900-square-foot store will be at the corner of Thames and Caroline streets, right between the Fells Point and Harbor East neighborhoods.
“That area seems to be constantly growing and we are excited to be here,” says Ashley Lines, marketing director for Charm City Run. “We have our downtown Locust Point location currently, but we just felt like there was a need for the wellness community on the other side of the harbor.”

Charm City Run hopes to attract the many runners and pedestrians that pass by the new location on their way to work. You can expect to see a consistent array of shoes, apparel, and accessories from brands the store already carries, like Saucony, Mizuno, Under Armour, and many more. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the store’s unique fitting process—they analyze and measure your feet, ensuring that you pick the best shoes for your body.
This location will offer pub fun runs, free community yoga classes, and, of course, the store’s well-known training groups, which meet up several times a week in preparation for specific races that are happening around town.
“We have never been in the business of just selling shoes,” says Charm City Run owner, Josh Levinson. “We want to provide a great community and access to support for runners and walkers of all abilities and experience. We want people to meet, run, and connect.”
