Holabird Sports Runner Appreciation Day

Celebrate running with demonstrations, games, giveaways and more!


Running is more popular than ever: Over 29 million people run 50 or more days each year. Last year’s Baltimore marathon had a record 26,100 runners, showing an approximately 10% growth over the year before. Holabird Sports celebrates the growth of running as a sport and the millions of people who love to run with their second Runner Appreciation Day.

The Holabird Sports Runner Appreciation Day is show of gratitude for both their customers and the running community. This in-store event will give runners the opportunity to meet and speak with representatives from a variety of major running shoe companies as well as the chance to watch technology demonstrations and receive personal fitting advice. Experts will be on hand to analyze running gaits, and Medstar NRH is offering free injury assessments.  

The following companies will be attending: adidas, ASICS, Karhu, Mizuno, Puma, Salomon, Saucony, Under Armour, Timex, Gu, Clif, Balega and many, many more.  Runner Appreciation Day is the absolute last chance for anyone to purchase a pre-registration ticket for the 10k Across the Bay inaugural run. This is the exclusive date and location for purchasing pre-registration tickets; only 300 tickets will be available for purchase.

Finally, there will be many free samples, giveaways, raffles and games. Prizes include free pairs of running shoes, clothing, hats and more. This year’s Runner Appreciation Day falls during Maryland Tax Free week. Customers will be able to save by enjoying no tax on items $100 or less. 

 “We love and appreciate our customers,” says David Hirshfeld, Owner of Holabird Sports. “In addition to hosting representatives from most of the major running brands, we’ve planned a full day of games, demonstrations, personalized fittings and more. We hope to see people who currently shop at Holabird as well as many new faces. This day is truly for anyone who loves to run.”

The Holabird Sports Runner Appreciation Day will be held at the Holabird Sports showroom at 9220 Pulaski Highway, Baltimore, MD 21220 on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
