Best Boxing day sales for Running gear and clothing...

Postby Geisha Girl » Fri Dec 17, 2010 8:52 am

As a newbie runner I need some running gear - especially cold weather gear - for the upcoming LTR I am doing. Any suggestions on the best place(s) to get great deals on boxing day?

I have often found awesome boxing week sales at sport chek.

I do most of my gear shopping at Winners.
Occasionally I check out the Brooks warehouse sales put on by Athletic Locker. They have a warehouse in Oakville, Mississauga and Cambridge and they're having a big sale again in Oakville. The Brooks tech gear is well priced, but there's also a lot of cr@ppy stuff they sell. Happy shopping...

Another vote for Winners. They seem to get on the new year resolution band wagon and get tonnes of good stuff in.

That reminds me. I need to get a new bathing suit.

I vote Geisha Girl has the best picture that suits running with a purpose. Totaly off topic. I am kind of busy on Boxing Day. That 10 miler in Hamilton.

Speaking to DH, I know what some of the boxing day sales are at Sport Chek for this year. Minimum of 20% off the whole store, this include product lines that never go on sale. And I do believe he said 30% Under Armour outerwear.

It's a little tucked away, but its on their website. Off the 427, south of dundas on North Queen. You need to get off at dundas though.

I wear the NB 1064, they had the 1063's at 19.99. I would have bought the wall, but they didn't have my size.

Still though, theres some good deals if you can find stuff that fits. I spent about $200 and walked out with shorts and pants galore, along with some other gear.

I've shopped at the RR Outlet store a fair bit! In fact, the viking and I have pretty much cleared their trail shoe stock in the last 2 years. Now they're out of the women's Mizuno Ascend 3s size 9s and the men's Brooks Cascadia 2s and 3s size 11.5. :lol:

If you're looking for older models, you can still buy shoes under $100, which these days is rare. I hardly ever shop in their regular stores, because I find their stuff overpriced, but the outlet store is pretty good if you don't care about running in 2-3 year old shoes. Yeah, yeah, I know, I know, EVA foam deteriorates over time, bla, bla, bla, but if you're running on trails, grass or softer surfaces, you'll be fine. One thing to remember, shopping there is a bit hit and miss...

The store is at 130 North Queen St, north of Queensway & East Mall.

For those in Ottawa, Sports 4's Boxing Day Sale has started already. I think it's 25% off clothes and lots of shoes are on sale too. Picked up another pair of NB760 for $89 on Friday.

You know what sucks...

I can never get anything on sale- i am just lucky to get out of small town to another small town and hope they have my size and hope I can pick up a shift to pay for said shoes.
You know I have ONE pair of running shorts. I really need a pity party.
