Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers instead of miles and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with today’s Groupon to Bob Roncker’s Running Spot, valid at its locations in Cincinnati, Glendale, and Loveland or the Kentucky location in Newport. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 toward running, athletic, lifestyle, and winter apparel.
- For $20, you get $40 toward running shoes, lifestyle shoes, and boots.<p>
The knowledgeable staff at Bob Roncker’s Running Spot helps clients dash to the finish line with high-quality, brand-name running shoes and everyday footwear, as well as athletic and lifestyle apparel, earning it the title of Running Store of the Year in 2008 by Formula 4 Media. The first Groupon option sheathes shoppers’ bodies in stylish and functional high-performance apparel. Zensah sports bras keep runners comfortable with moisture-wicking fabric and thermal control ($35), and men’s and women’s Patagonia jackets repel condensation during inclement weather ($118.99). The understated elegance of a double-layered cowl-neck dress ($79.99) suits a formal fun run or black-tie marathon.
Alternatively, with the second option of this deal, customers can deck out their feet with running shoes. Like adopting a tree into the family, Vibram FiveFingers shoes ($89) help provide runners with an intense connection to their surroundings. Customers can sprint away in a pair of Brooks PureProject shoes ($89), designed to emulate barefoot running while still protecting feet from the elements, or lace up a pair of New Balance shoes ($79.99+, most pairs cost about $100), ideal for walkers, runners, or competitive standers. Though not included in this Groupon, Bob Roncker’s Running Spot keeps patrons involved with the local running community through fitness- and health-education classes, local races and events, and casual running and walking groups.
