When I started running, I didn’t realize how expensive the sport could be. Clothes, shoes, safety gear, trackers and nutrition all add up.
Whether you are new to the sport or just looking for some ways to reduce the amount spent on gear, here are some tips on how save some money.
Running shoes tend to have a new model that comes out twice a year. When the new models come out, the previous ones go on sale. If you live in Western Washington and like Brooks, check out the Brooks Outlet in Bothell. They also have a clearance sale at the store twice a year where the shoes are marked down even more.
The Target app has coupons for their athletic apparel and fitness equipment. Not only can you get running clothes, but you can work on building up a home gym as well.
Amazon also sells athletic gear, including factory refurbished fitness trackers. I got my Garmin factory refurbished with the same warranty as a new one, but at a lower cost.
