Our Story

Inspired by a passion for running and helping others to be fit and healthy, Bayside Runner first opened its doors in February 2010.

Co-owner Adam Stuhlfaut

Whether at our races, local events, or at our store, as the South Shore and Cape Cod’s independently owned and operated store running store, we are proud to help runners and walkers at all levels.

Meet some of the people making this possible:

Adam with son Max

Adam Stuhlfaut, Co-Owner: Bayside Runner is co-owned and operated by Adam Stuhlfaut. Adam’s passion for running began when he raced his first mile on a cinder track in his 7th-grade gym class. He went on to run competitively at Wayzata High School (Minnesota), where he won the state cross-country championship in his senior year, at Princeton University (New Jersey) and for the New Balance Boston racing club. Adam also has coached runners at every level and age. He is constantly inspired by working with many amazing people. Adam has also worked in the footwear industry as a product consultant for Puma International and as the track and field footwear product manager for New Balance. Adam lives with his wife, Amanda, and his two kids Anna & Max (Max was born on the day of the Boston Marathon in 2011!)

Tom Pena

Tom is a entrepreneur that owns multiple small businesses. He is also an avid runner and active tri-athlete. Among his running endeavors is an ultra Team run and the Boston Marathon twice. It was his love for running that drew him into Bayside Runner, but it was his innovative and spirited sales ideas that led to his eventual partnership in May 2012.
