Run to the Sun Tanning Salon is located at the corner of C st. & Tudor Rd. in midtown. You can find us in the mall next door to TGI Fridays.
Tanning rooms are equipped with wipes, antiperspirant, towels, and radios. All staff is Smart Tan Certified, and can answer questions customers have about tanning & spray tanning. A vanity for freshening up after tanning is also available.
Obviously 'run to the sun' writes their own reviews. Thats tacky. The salon would be a lot nicer and clean looking if their wasn't a dog running around. What if your customers were highly allergic to pet dander? Yikes.
Im sorry you feel that way. We haven't written any reviews ourselves. Was there something that happened with our salon or our girls that we could address and make right? The dog is actually a draw to Run to the Sun and typically is gone before rush hour. We look forward to your reply. We are sorry you had a bad experience with us when you came in last.

Thank you is the the first thing that comes to mind when I think about Run to the Sun! The staff at the salon are the happiest girls in town,must be all that vitamin D they get from the tanning beds. They will also be able to answer all your tanning questions because they are Smart Tan certified.Let's not forget the spray tanning. Hey I'm not a spray tan expert but the spray tan techs at Run to the Sun again can answer all your questions.I say go tan at Run to the Sun and you wont want to go anywhere else.
Have you ever waited for a tanning appointment in awkward silence, staring at travel posters on the wall so that you don’t appear to overhear the desk clerk’s caddy high school phone conversation? BORING!
Wouldn’t you rather get your dose of Vitamin D somewhere you can laugh, relax, and enjoy yourself?
That’s why I ‘Run to the Sun’! The decor is always sunny and tropical, no matter what the weather is like outside. And more importantly, the staff is welcoming, upbeat, and professional. They keep the atmosphere at Run to the Sun both laid back and fun.
Better yet, they happen to be experts on the science of tanning. (Yes, there is a science to it!) I have yet to ask the staff a question they couldn’t answer about the levels of tanning, tanning beds, lotions, after tan care, or the effects of tanning. They even have sunless tanning specialists!!! The staff is educated to help you achieve the most healthy, beautiful tan possible. I mean, WOW! That’s customer service!
Even If you don't feel ‘chatty’ they have plenty of things to interest you. You can shop for Tommy Bahamas beachwear, or peruse the super sexy Miche bag collection. Or my personal favorite - play with the Run to the Sun mascot, Rex!!!
Run to the Sun Tanning Salon has great tanning beds. My favorite beds are their levels 1 & 2. Upon going there for the first time, I didn't understand the difference between the beds, but their knowledgeable 'tanning techs' explained everything. All of their employees are Smart Tan certified so they know what they are talking about. Their girls explained the differences in the lotions and helped me find the best one for me. Run to the Sun has a spectacular staff and their customer service is top of the line. Best tanning salon in town, by far!
