Since first opening our doors back in 1975, we have steadily grown from our single mom-and-pop store in Cambridge to 18 stores across the Northeastern coast, as well as offering our full line of products through our online store for domestic and international shipping. We are proud to be included in the “Best of Boston” retailer list by Boston magazine 16 times and consistently recognized as one the top running stores in the country. Our success comes from our passion to actively develop our company, and that starts with finding great people to join our team. No two roles are the same! We work with each team member to ensure that they are getting the most out of their time spent with us, and that we evolve together.


For us, a job is more than just a bunch of daily tasks that need to be checked off before the end of your shift. It’s about helping someone work to achieve a personal goal that is not only lofty, but packed with reward for both you and the customer. Whether it’s about helping someone train for their first marathon, first 5K, or begin their running journey, your time spent with us is so much more than just a simple retail interaction.

Marathon Sports is committed to providing equal opportunity to all associates and qualified applicants without regard to race, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, marital status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, legally protected physical or mental disability or any other basis protected under applicable law.
