Hump Day Dash at =PR= Burke Powered by New Balance @ =PR= Burke
Apr 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Hump Day Dash at =PR= Burke Powered by New Balance @ =PR= Burke | Burke | Virginia | United States

Come by PR Burke on Wednesday, April 16 at 7:00 PM for a fun run Powered by New Balance! Meet our New Balance rep and learn about all the latest in the New Balance shoe line!  There will even be a variety of shoes to test out while out on your fun run!

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.
