After being in business in NYC for 22 years, it was time for a change. I grew-up in Philadelphia and spent my summers in Atlantic City and Ventnor. After doing some research I found that there weren’t any businesses offering running and walking programs, so it was fertile ground. I also care deeply about Atlantic City, and moved my life and business here to make a positive impact on the region and to be a part of its renewal.


The Running Center was founded in New York City in 1999 by professional running coach and entrepreneur, Mindy Solkin. Coach Mindy, who has coached 12,000 runners since 1992, is certified by USA Track & Field as a running coach and the American Council on Exercise as a personal trainer. In the fall of 2014, she expanded her business to the South Jersey shore area, bringing a wealth of fitness, health and wellness knowledge to the shore population. The Running Center offers professionally-coached group and private training for runners of all levels―from beginners taking their first step out the door―to experienced marathoners looking to improve their time. Other classes include Boot Camp for Runners™, Treadmilling™ and Runditioning™. We also offer outdoor fitness walking classes and running classes for kids.



The Running Center is new to the area, expanding to the area six months ago (Fall 2014).



Located in the Downbeach area of Atlantic City.
