Our story begins in 1977. 

With no run shop in Chattanooga, our founder, Dick Dillard, was tired of driving two hours every few months to buy his running shoes. Wanting to solve this problem for all local runners, Dillard opened up his own athletic store in Eastgate Mall under the franchise Athletic Attic. Over the years the shop has moved locations and changed names. Alan Outlaw is the current head honcho, but Dillard is still with us, fitting his faithful customers who have been with him from the beginning.
