Running Apparel Holiday Gift Guide
Each year we travel to Blue Ridge, GA for our Annual Retreat to plan for the following year. It’s not all business. It’s a great opportunity to get the team together for a little R&R and even a trail run on the Aska Trails. Blue Ridge provided the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot to showcase some of the running apparel found at Big Peach Running Co. this holiday season. (Additional brands and styles available at our locations. Brands and availability vary from store to store.)
Our popular RUNATL shirts make the perfect gift. We’re sure you’ll want one for yourself as well. Whether you run in these shirts or wear them around town you’ll look good and feel good in these long sleeve RUNATL shirts printed on The North Face Reaxion T. Soft to the touch like cotton, but made of highly moisture wicking spun polyester, and 5% elastane jersey adds a little bit of stretch for unrestricted movement. Flatlock seams add extra comfort.
