Gear for Dad’s Day

Gear for Dad’s Day

This Sunday is Father’s Day, not that you forgot, but in case you have not yet secured your gifts here is a handy check-list of some items you can pick up at Pacers Running. Bonus: if you spend $150 you get a free pair of socks. More gifts for the Dad you are shopping for, everyone wins.

Water Bottle


It is hot out there and it’s easy to keep Dad hydrated with a cool Camelback chute DC flag water bottle. DC pride, check, cool drink, check, happy Dad, check.


Kid’s Gear


This might seem counterintuitive but cute kids make the Dad. Plus take a look at this cuteness!  The perfect gift for the new Dad is a Pacers Running onesie. What is cuter than a cheeky baby onesie? Nothing, case closed. If you have older children then the My Dad is Faster Than Your Dad is a sure thing. Are we right?




Dad’s like data and Gramin is nothing but a perfect tool to collect it. The Garmin 735XT captures all of the data for your multi-sport Dad. There are other options in store and online as well so you can get the model that meets Dad’s needs the best.


Running Back Pack


Does Dad need to commute to work on a metro line that may not work? Of course he does, everyone does these days. Set Dad up for a good day at work with a backpack for him to wear during his run or bike commute. More time outdoors and less time in traffic gives you a happier, healthier Dad.


Race Entry: Twlighter

A race entry is a great gift. It is one size fits all, it is an activity you could do together, and it will not sit in a drawer unused. Crystal City Twilghter is the race to buy your Dad an entry for today. That gives him time to train for a fast, mid-summer, evening 5k.
