The Run Studio is your home base for all things running. We have a space at Mala Yoga in Cobble Hill for classes and integrated training, and we provide a variety of services, like coaching, personalized training plans, group runs, special programs, and more.

We are part of a joyful, close-knit community of runners, and we invite you to join us. Whether you seek the social cohesion of a group or the personal touch of one-on-one coaching, The Run Studio has it all.

Without Steph’s support, I quite simply would never have been able to have the running year I had. Which included taking 20 minutes off my half-marathon PR!
