Come by PR Ashburn on Tuesday, June 2nd for a fun run with Saucony!  Our Saucony rep will be on hand to talk about all the latest Saucony shoe technology and will even have some shoes you can test out while on your run!

Join us in Ashburn at 6:30 PM for our weekly Tuesday evening fun runs! 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 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 of similar ability. 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) 729-0133 in Ashburn.
