Throughout history, the ability to run has enabled humans to evade larger predators such as winged teratorns and wingless grandmas with bone-crushing hugs. Escape perilous predicaments with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of shoes, apparel, and accessories at Running Center in Carlsbad. This deal is valid for in-store purchases at the Carlsbad location only.

For more than 30 years, Running Center's wide selection of running and walking shoes has provided mobile citizens of every speed and arch shape with something comfortable for their feet. The store's friendly staff is always on hand to help customers find the right fit for their kicks. Although $50 might not get you the perfect pair of pavement amblers, it will get you a heavy discount on a pair of men's Nike Air Pegasus+ 28 ($79.99) or women's Asics Gel Foundation ($69.99).

Running Center also offers running accessories to make forest trots or molten volcano treks more pleasant. Trust the smart comfort of the Injinji performance mini crew sock made with a wicking fiber and individual toe sockets to keep feet cool and comfortable ($12). If you're a mathlete athlete who craves precision and tracking, scoop up the Nike iPod kit ($29), a handy device that works with Nike+ shoes to track your distance, pace, time, and calories burned. Run, jog, or jog in place on moving walkways in comfy style with a visit to the Running Center.

Running Center

Since 1977, Running Center has attested that no one should have to "break in" new shoes. Staff members endeavor to find pairs that suit sprints immediately, adjusting their picks based on the size, width, and pronation—a joint's habit of rotating past a neutral position—of each client's feet. They haven't learned this science simply by training; the employees are all athletes themselves, and they rely on a common passion for fitness rather than a commission goal as they recommend footwear. They help customers avoid injuries by answering questions on the shop's stock and on running in general, addressing common topics such as gait and how to stave off coffee spills on your morning jog.

Specialty shoes range from trail-running sneakers to racing flats and cross-country spikes. With choices from Nike, New Balance, Asics, and other brands, customers can experiment with different support systems that align with their body and lifestyle.


The Running Center is a great store to hit up for all your running needs.
