Summer Running Continues To Heat Up!
With July running into August, it's time for the 2015 Sales Tax Holiday on July 31st and August 1st. According to state guidelines, all shoes and apparel items priced up to $100 are exempt from sales tax.  We don’t think that’s good enough. So, to make things totally Peachy on the 31st and 1st, sales tax is on us for EVERYTHING at BPRC – no matter the category, no matter the price!

August also means school starts up again next week, and cross country season is here. We offer a great variety of spikes and discounts for CC runners. If you would like information about setting up a spike night for your school, please call your neighborhood Big Peach store.


Meet and greet some of the athletes participating in the Celebrity Track Meet at BPRC Midtown on Tuesday, July 28th at 4pm. Athletes, musicians, and actors are going to run relay races for their favorite chairties at this fun event at Grady High School on August 1st. Discounted tickets can be purchased here.



Pick A Card - Any Card
Poker Run BPRC Brookhaven
August 11, 6:30pm 
Know what's more fun than a group run at BPRC? A poker run group run with our friends from Team Challenge! You'll pick up the first card for your poker hand at our Brookhaven store, as you take off for a casual 3-mile run or walk, with dealers handing out additional cards along the way. You'll finish your run and get your last card at Noche restaurant where the party really begins! There will be food and drink specials offered, with a portion of your check donated to the Chrohn's & Colitis Foundation.

The $10 ticket serves as a donation to CCFA, and every participant will receive a great prize pack worth much more than your $10 donation! Purchase your tickets here!




Fuel Your Run
Huma Chia Gel
Strawberries 

If you're running the long miles, you need fuel. The standard advice is to consume 100 (or so) calories every 45-60 minutes. Everyone is a little different, but this is a good guideline. One of the most efficient ways to get the calories, energy producing carbs, and electrolytes in your system is with sports gels or chews. 
We offer a wide variety of brands and flavors at BPRC, and decided to highlight Huma Chia Gel Strawberries because it will be handed out on the Hotlanta Half Marathon course next month. (Register for the race at any BPRC!) The first ingredient in this gel is strawberry puree, and as the name indicates, Huma contains finely milled chia seeds. Add to that a 2:1 glucose (short and long chains) to fructose ratio combined with all 9 essential amino acids, and you have an easy to digest, all natural boost.

If you're training for the Hotanta Half, you're getting into the longer miles now. Getting used to strawberry flavor Huma on your training runs will make race day that much easier! Each packet is $2.25. If you're new to gels or have other favorites, don't forget our bulk discount. Purchase a box of your favorite gel, or a box of mixed brands and flavors, and save 5%. (This may be combined with other discounts!)
