About Us

Durban Runner is a specialist running shop with a team made up runners and triathletes who strongly believe in giving our customers expert advice and fitting them with the right equipment for what is intended.

We stock very specific brands, catering for all runners. We also offer running apparel and accessories, stocking the latest ranges of triathlon gear.

Durban Runner was purchased by Zane in 2010 from a national chain of specialized running retail outlets. For over 11 years we have been serving our customers and keeping up with the trends and innovative advancements in running and triathlon gear.

We pride ourselves on being Durban's oldest and most well known sports apparel store. Knowledge is power, and experience is the source of knowledge.
