Thanks for shopping at Charm City Run online store! We want to make sure you have all the right gear so that you can achieve your running and fitness goals. Within 2 weeks of delivery, go ahead and try the shoes on the road, trail, treadmill or track and if they don’t feel right send them back and we will exchange them for you. We only ask that you use them for their intended purpose and, so we are on the same page, mowing the lawn does not count. Although our exchange policy is great, we still reserve the right to deny a request for exchange if you used the gear to stomp grapes while making your own wine, cleaning out your horse’s stall or participating in a color run.  Even though color runs are technically running they are awesomely messy and, well, we think you get the point.

We also think it’s reasonable that, within 2 weeks from the day of arrival, you will decide if you do not want to keep your items.  If you want to exchange your purchase keep reading and we’ll let you know how easy it is. (You MUST initiate your refund or exchange with us within 2 weeks of receiving the product).


You can either bring the product(s) back to the store or send it back to us. If you send it back to us, we’ll pay for the shipping unless you are mailing it from outside the 48 contiguous United States. We won’t pay for your gas to drive to the store though. Sorry about that.  Either way, just follow these easy steps:

  • Email or call 410-561-3570.
    • Let us know your order#.
    • If you want a refund (Charm City Run store credit only) or exchange.
    • Which item(s) you want to return or exchange.
    • If you want to exchange, what item do you want to exchange for?
    • The reason you would like to return or exchange the item(s).  (i.e. wrong size, didn't feel good, changed my mind, etc.)
    • Within one business day, if not sooner, we’ll email you a Return Authorization and a pre-paid UPS shipping label.

If you want to mail it back to us:

  • Place the item(s) you want to return/exchange back in the shipping box they came in along with a copy of your return authorization email.  If you are sending shoes back please put them in the shoe box they came in and then put the shoe box in the shipping box.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SHOE BOX AS THE SHIPPING BOX.  IF YOU JUST TAPE UP THE SHOE BOX AND SEND IT BACK TO US WE WON'T BE ABLE TO ISSUE YOUR REFUND BECAUSE WE CANNOT RESELL THAT SHOE.
  • Tape the SHIPPING BOX closed.
  • Stick or tape the return label we sent to you on top of the shipping label already on the box.  The return label goes on the brown shipping box.  Make sure the barcode is visible and can be scanned by UPS.  We need that shoe box in as good condition as the shoes you’re sending back!
  • Drop the box off at your nearest UPS store or drop box.
  • It takes somewhere between 3 and 5 business days for UPS to get your return back to us.  Once we receive it, we will process your return and credit your account for the purchase amount.  We will notify you of this via email. If you are exchanging an item, it will be shipped to you once we receive your original item.

Don’t forget to keep the tracking info as you will be responsible until we receive the items into our warehouse.

You are also welcome to bring your purchase back to any Charm City Run location.
