Potomac River Running is a family-owned, local business with eight area DC-area stores to serve you. Though our name says “running” you don’t have to love, or even like running to come see us! We offer a personalized fitting experience to help you select the right shoe for you — whether to stand at work, head to the gym, or run your first (or 101st) race. You’ll find apparel choices that work for your activity of choice too! So whether you walk the dog, run after the kids, workout for fitness or for brownies, or race every weekend, let us help make that experience better! more >>


=PR= Reston Fun Run Powered by Carb-Boom Nutritionals @ =PR= Reston
Aug 25 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Come out to PR Reston on Thursday, August 25 at 6:30 PM for our all-comer’s fun run with Carb-Boom Nutritionals! Our Carb-Boom Nutritionals rep will be at our fun run with a wide array of gel nutritionals to test out.  You might find a new favorite!

Our weekly fun run is held in cooperation with the Reston Runners at 6:30 PM every Thursday evenings from the =PR= Reston Store. It is a great opportunity for those working in the area to get a run in while the traffic dies down. Join us to meet new people and add some structure to your training schedule. Whether you’re a beginner or a competitive runner, come out for a fun, low-key run that’s safe and social. The run is typically no more than 50 minutes — from the store out and back on the W&OD trail. 50 minutes is not a magic number, but by going out and back, everyone can start and finish together and run at their own pace with others like them. New runners may only want to run a mile or two. Experienced athletes might do a tempo run. Occasionally, some of the group will finish the evening at a local eatery for some “refueling.”

Questions? Call us at the store at (703) 689-0999 in Reston.
