Hump Day Dash & PT Demo @ =PR= Burke
Feb 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Come by PR Burke on Wednesday, February 10 at 7:00 PM for our weekly fun run. We will have Susan Glosby, ACE Certified Personal Trainer and Orthopedic Exercise Specialist, joining us at our run.  Susan will be at the store to help answer any personal injury related questions you may have.

The Burke Hump Day Dash is a weekly social run lead by =PR= staff members, every Wednesday evening at 7pm. 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.
