Global Running Day Fun Run @ =PR= Burke
Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Come by =PR= Burke on Wednesday, June 1st at 7:00 PM to celebrate Global Running Day! Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running.

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.
