The origin of running was early man’s desire to humble cocky racehorses. Continue to knock stallions down a peg with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of running apparel and shoes at Pacers. This Groupon is only valid at the Logan Circle location.

Pacers provides a large inventory of running shoes, apparel, and more in its new P Street location. Highly trained employees, who earned a 2009 ABBIE for Best Customer Service, help customers select the proper footwear, taking into account individual fitness levels, previous injuries, running goals, and the results of Pacers' complimentary gait analysis. After the hoof assessment, match needs with fashionable racing boots from brands such as Asics, Saucony, Brooks, and Nike (average price is $100). Runners can show off triple-striped sleeves with an Adidas zip-up top ($65) or wrap themselves in Nike shorts (starting at $28), tops (starting at $25), and pants (starting at $55). To quench runner's thirst or ensure buoyancy after running into a kiddie pool, strap on a water belt ($50).

Pacers, which is managed by elite runner Robbie Wade, is deeply involved in the community, sponsoring races, hosting a Pacers race series, raising money for charities, and donating shoes to the unshoed. In addition, runners can enjoy free runs with Pacers people at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays and at 5 a.m. on Wednesdays.

In-store purchases only. Not valid on sale items.
