WELCOME TO =PR= RUNNING

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 Mizuno & Nathan @ =PR= Reston
Mar 26 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
=PR= Reston Fun Run Powered by Mizuno & Nathan @ =PR= Reston | Reston | Virginia | United States

Come out to PR Reston on Thursday, March 26 at 6:30 PM for our all-comer’s fun run with Mizuno & Nathan! Both reps will be at our fun run to demo their latest products.  Come a few minutes before the run and grab a pair of Mizuno shoes to try one while on your run!  The warmer weather will be here soon, so now’s a great opportunity to try out some of our Nathan accessories that can help to keep you hydrated while on your run!  All levels are welcome – we hope you’ll join us!

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.
