Our local Road Runner Sports store has long been my go to for shoes and gear however, as I am quickly learning there is so much more going on. Road Runner Sports is a place to learn, run & shop.
Last weekend, we had a private seminar on injury prevention and pre run stretching. Recap and demo here. Our Moms Run This Town group learned a lot of really practical advice to implement into our running routines. Road Runner loves to work with local groups to offer classes and seminars and also offers running club discounts. There are 40 locations across the country. Check their events calendar here.
Have your local store video you running on their treadmill to help you decide which pair of shoes is right for you. This whole process just takes a few minutes and can be really helpful in making sure that you are in the right pair of shoes.
Not only do all of the stores offer weekly group runs, from April to October each of the Road Runner Sports stores holds Adventure Runs. Check your local store for info. If you have never been to one-run don’t walk to next month’s run. Firstly, you are given tons of raffle tickets upon check in and you can earn many more while checking in at certain spots along your run route. The runs are family friendly and non competitive. The adventure run has you running or walking to local spots (yoga studios or yogurt shops etc.) where you gather more tickets. Run as little or as far as you wish. Meet back at the store for free beer and raffles. Our MRTT group seems to always win free shoes and gear. Last night, my local store had a grand re opening adventure run-so much fun!
Not only does Road Runner carry all of your favorite brands of running gear, they also have their own R Gear apparel for men and women. They have really upped their game with tons of new colors and styles for spring. All are available on line and in store.
Thanks to Road Runner Sports in Falls Church for providing me with some awesome spring clothes in exchange for this review. See those cute Brooks Running tights above. Now all I need is spring to actually arrive.
