What makes Rhode Runner truly different is the dedicated and hard working staff. They are committed to finding you the proper footwear, apparel and gear to get you started on the right foot...and the left.
Patrick is an integral part of Rhode Runner. He's our fearless leader, our ships captain, our unstoppable force. He's also the friendliest gentleman you'll ever meet. Well schooled in the latest and greatest shoe technology he's the man who picks what you see on the wall. His running career has spanned decades, a PC grad and Olympic Trials qualifier in the Marathon if you have any questions about running he's the man to ask!
The man with the difficult last name is the easiest guy to get along with. Ray is quite literally the nicest man on the planet and we're so glad he decided to join our team. Ray was a running club member before he decided one day at the Rhode just wasn't enough! He's the perfect employee as he'll listen to everything you have to say and help make you're shoe buying experience a great one!
Beth is our fashion forward fashionista. Well versed in the latest style trends she purchases our apparel and sports bras. The apparel you see on the floor she is responsible for. She is also our store manager and keeps the other employees in line (not that we need it ;) Beth has run 5 marathons and 11 half marathons so if long distance running is your bag Beth is the lady to see!
Peter is the foundation of Rhode Runner. He has experience working inside of the industry and out. Known affectionately as the "shoeologist" Peter is known to solve even the toughest foot issues. He's worked for Saucony, Converse and Reebok, we're glad he's decided to work here and help us step up our game
Eric manages our marketing initiatives and website (he's the one typing this!). You'll see Eric out at the latest 5k or Half Marathon either set up under a tent or on the starting line with you. He'll be at your next corporate health fair or visiting your local fitness center espousing how great a good pair of running shoes can feel!
Jim is the elder statesman of Rhode Runner wise beyond his years Jim has run around the block a few times. Jim's role at Rhode Runner focuses on organizing Lunch n' Learns at local business, implementing sofa to 5k programs and "developing business!"
