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 >>

Hump Day Dash Powered by Orangetheory Fitness @ =PR= Burke
Oct 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Hump Day Dash Powered by Orangetheory Fitness @ =PR= Burke | Burke | Virginia | United States

Come by =PR= Burke on Wednesday, October 5th at 7:00 PM for a fun run with Orangetheory Fitness! The owner of the new location in Fairfax will be at the store to talk about all the philosophy behind Orangetheory Fitness and how it can improve your overall fitness.

The Burke Hump Day Dash is a weekly social run lead by =PR= staff members, every Wednesday evening at 6pm. The free program is a great way to meet new people and add some structure to your training schedule. Whether you’re a beginner or a competitive runner, please join us for a fun, low-key run that’s safe and social.

The run is typically no more than 50 minutes — from the store on the trails and paths of Burke. 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 of similar ability. New runners may only want to run a mile or two. Experienced athletes might do a tempo run.

Stick around afterward to have a beer with other runners!

Questions? Call us at the store at (703) 978-0500 in Burke.
