  • Kimmell Conference Center @ Kimray, 8 NW 42ND ST, OKC 73118

Guest Speakers: 

Craig ThompsonAfter studying… and playing… at Western State in Gunnison, Colorado , and being bitten by the exercise science bug, continuing studies at the University Kansas and University of Oklahoma combined with 3 years working at The Runner in OKC led to a family venture into the run specialty business in 1995.

Beyond fitting footwear, I spent 10 years giving the footwear and injury prevention briefings at military bases across the state. I am guest lecturer on footwear at Norman Regional Hospital, the Oklahoma Association of Physical Therapists, the University of Oklahoma, as well as schools and businesses across the state.

20 years growing with the running industry and understanding its specific nature in providing an outlet to fit and educate the community in running footwear, a need for constant continuing education has led to Certifications in Professional Shoe Fitting and Pedorthics (the science and practice of evaluating, fabricating and delivery of footwear and foot orthoses). As a C Ped specializing in sports performance orthotics studying under and now practicing with the preeminent Sports Pedorthist in the country Randall Barna in Bend, Oregon, providing a next level experience in run specialty retail has distinguished OK Runner from any other industry wide.

The long and short of it: 25 years of 10 hour days, 5 to 6 days a week of assessing gait, balancing psychology with kinesiology in properly fitting customers with the very best options in footwear, as well as specializing in making the best sports orthotics in the marketplace today, has prepared me to advise and provide for the needs of any athlete, fit or not so fit, young, old, injured, healthy, walking, running, working, yada, yada

Location: Kimmell Conference Center at Kimray, 8 NW 42nd St, OKC 73118
