About Us

One more step.

We were not avid runners. We were not track or cross country stars. We were two adults trying to drop post-college weight on a shoestring budget. After our first 5k we fell in love with the running community.

In 2016 we moved to Libertyville and stumbled into the running store. We spent four years as fit specialists, management, building community relationships, racing and balancing family life. Our family consists of 5 now, and in February 2020 we came full circle opening 847 Running Company in the heart of downtown Libertyville, IL.

Our intention for 847 Running Company is to be a reminder that being active is made better by the company you keep. It’s a place for the walker, weight loss runner, student athlete, road racer, trail aficionado, the parent, postpartum mama, stroller pushing dad, college grad, kids, fitness omnivore and Lake County small business supporter. We live here. We eat here. We shop here. We raise kids here. We run these streets. We walk these streets. We bike these trails.

Welcome to our family. How may we help you?
