Pacers Alexandria opened in 1991 and is “ye olde”-st store in the Pacers family. Nestled among historic buildings and rowhouses, this store embodies the “old running store” feel with decades worth of running memorabilia and memories.
Pacers Alexandria is managed by Joe Schultz, an architect by trade who started with Pacers Alexandria as a volunteer fun run leader over five years ago. It bustles with activity from open to close and serves as a meeting point for innumerable runners in Alexandria, which has the most marathoners per capita of any city in the country. The Pacers Alexandria Fun Run group is one of our largest with the broadest range of paces. Also, on Saturday mornings you can find the ladies of the Beginner & Re-Beginner group heading out for a long slow run along the Potomac.
Located just blocks from the King Street Metro stop and 13 blocks from the shore of the Potomac River, l stop by and enjoy the legendary service of this Alexandria institution.
