Athletic Outpost is a full service running/walking specialty store in downtown Walnut Creek, CA boasting the most experienced staff you’ll find anywhere.

At this moment the staff at Athletic Outpost want to send out our greatest concern for the Coronavirus Pandemic.  Since this is something we have never had to deal with in the past we are trying to think of ways to help out your running/walking supply needs.  We were told by the state that starting 12am, March 17th-April 7th that all “non essential” businesses need to be remain closed.  During this time period we are trying to think of ways to help out our customers.  You can leave a phone message, email or contact us on our facebook fan page.  We are  doing a “curbside” pickup from Athletic Outpost everyday usually from the hours of 11-5pm. Some of our shoe vendors are doing drop ship straight from their warehouse to your home.  We can place that order for you! Here is our contact information:  (925) 943-6453, and on facebook: athletic outpost.

All fitness apparel is 50% off in the store.  While supplies last.  

Nothing could possibly help you understand what makes us the rave of the East Bay more than personally visiting our store. One of our trained, experienced staff will be pleased to illustrate what we do here at Athletic Outpost. Simply bring your feet and a smile and some old worn running shoes if possible and we’ll be happy to help you!
