Treadmill studio takeover: TheRun is becoming a Mile High Run Club


Here's what you need to know before lacing up your sneakers in the new space.

Mile High Run ClubMile High Run Club and TheRun have been racing alongside each other ever since the treadmill studio trend began taking off—but this January, only Mile High will be standing at the finish line.

TheRun, which famed running coach and former Olympian John Henwood opened on 25th Street in April, officially closed its doors last week, and it will reopen as Mile High Run Club’s second location in January 2016.

The cool part: Henwood, whom Mile High founder Debora Warner refers to as a “good friend,” is sticking around as part of the new team.

“It just seemed like great timing,” Warner says. “We’re bringing him on board. We actually retained some of TheRun staff, operations managers, front desk attendants, a few of the coaches—it’s kind of been a seamless transition.”

Henwood will be helping grow an expanded outdoor run program at Mile High, Warner says, which will have six- and ten-week training plans for new to advanced runners looking to get faster or prepare for specific races.

The space itself, however, is already under construction and will get a total makeover until it’s in line with the look of the studio’s original Noho location, with new Woodway treadmills and Mile High lighting and branding.

And thanks to a recent partnership with Nike, you can also expect an expanded retail section (i.e. walking out with clean workout clothes). As to whether this acquisition of a competitor points to more expansions in the future, Warner says that “opportunities come up all over the place,” but nothing else is set in stone, yet.
