Online Returns basics

Simply return qualifying items to us within 30 days of receiving your order for a refund on regular and sale priced merchandise that meet the criteria for a return. If you prefer a different size or colour, please place a new order for the item you would like. You may also return items to an authorized store if you wish to exchange (exchanges are In-Store only - see authorized stores below). Please allow 3-4 business days for processing after your return is received. Original shipping costs will not be refunded. If your return affects the original order total so that it no longer qualifies for free shipping, or meets the requirements of any coupons or special offers you used, your order total will be adjusted accordingly when your return is processed. If you received free shipping and you decide to return ALL items from your order, the cost of regular shipping for your area will be deducted from your return.

What are the criteria for online returns?

All products being returned must be in original condition and sellable as new. You may try shoes on clean indoor surfaces that won't mark outsoles. Beware of treadmills that may cause visible wear very quickly and render shoes not returnable. All retail packaging and items such as tags or manuals must also be in new condition. Gift Cards, non-stock special orders, or anything specifcally marked "Final Sale" are not-returnable. For sanitary reasons, underwear bottoms and bathing suits are NOT returnable. For safety and health reasons, food items including gels, bars, drinks, and supplements cannot be returned. Sealed DVD's and electronics must be unopened to qualify for a return. Items with a price ending in .00 are final sale and cannot be returned.

Can I bring an item purchased online back to a store?

Items purchased online may be returned at Running Free stores in Barrie, Markham, or Newmarket. Online orders cannot be returned to Running Free Ajax or Running Free Orangeville. In-store returns must be accompanied by your original invoice and the credit card that was used for your purchase. If the original credit card is not present, a store credit will be issued instead.
