The ElliptiGO is the world’s first elliptical bicycle. Designed by runners as the ideal cross-training device, the ElliptiGO combines the best of running, cycling and the elliptical trainer to deliver a low-impact, high-performance workout outdoors. We are offering a fantastic opportunity to try one out, for FREE! Rides will be offered on Saturday, August 20, starting every 90 minutes beginning at 8:30 AM with the last ride starting at 5:30 PM. ElliptiGO representative Matt Reece will take the group on a 3 mile ride of the surrounding Gainesville area. Click here for more information.
Come join us on our weekly trail runs at the Manassas Battlefield. Runs usually range from 6-12 miles, but are entirely up to the individual/group. We can match you with someone going your pace and distance so you don’t have to run alone! Meet at the Henry Hill visitor center for a 7:30am start. If new or unfamiliar with the trails, check in with a regular. If going longer than 6 miles, bring water, fuel -and this time of year – bug spray.
Our newest Running Quote shirt – this is our favorite! Come in and get yours for FREE with every shoe purchase. If you want to buy one for family or friends, or just don’t need new shoes now (but how can that be?) you can also purchase them on our website here.
