Just as humans must crawl before they walk, so too must they run before they can out hunt the lions. Limber up with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel and footwear at Forerunners. Choose between two locations: on Marine Drive North in North Vancouver and on West 4th Avenue.
Since 1986, Forerunners has furnished feet with an array of endorphin-enhancing, endurance-enabling footwear and running apparel. Featuring a staff of seasoned pavement pounders, Forerunners provides shoppers with guidance on not only on the best fit for singular feet features, such as low arches or miniature ankle wings, but also the lowdown on upcoming races, proper attire for changing climates, and time-trimming training tips. Apparel-wise, Forerunners supports latter-day goddesses of victory with such threads as Nike 6-inch woven shorts ($39.99) or a Nike pro bra ($34.99). Gents, meanwhile, can don Nike Mile UV short-sleeve shirts ($39.99) or Asics Velostretch short-sleeve shirts ($49.99) before dashing off to either the finish line or the donut line. Trod out of the store in a pair of arch-cosseting New Balance 860s ($139.99) or Asics GT-2160 ($159.99). For leisurely strolls or energetic clogging, Forerunners give succour to strained street stompers with a selection of tennis shoes, walking shoes, and cross trainers.
