Yesterday, I had some time to kill between work and dinner with friends, so I went shopping and went to Sports Authority and found the New Balance running shoes ( link above) on sale for $39. 97!! Also bought a new shirt on sale for $5.99, orginally for $24.99.<br><br>
This is the place where I found two tops for yoga on sale about a month ago.<br><br>
So, What has been your best deal on running related items?

best running deal ever? that would be my forerunner 305. I bought it when it first came out, but due to an error at the online store where I bought it I was able to get it at the price of the 205. But that was 2 years ago.

Kimbro - it was $180 on costco.com, and then I had a $50 rebate certificate for signing up for a email newsletter from powerbar.

Joined an area running club for $20. Since then I have won three $25 gift certificates for various running-related businesses and/or restaurants (owned by runners who support the club). I've won them by entering my PR's on their site and then they have monthly drawings. So I've made $55 so far.

Asics DS Trainers for $49...they're usually over $100. Used Marriott points to get my Garmin 305 (so that's kinda free).

Akron Marathon -- I believe the entry fee is $90 and you get a free pair of running shoes (last year it was Brooks), a subscription to Running Times and a nice long-sleeved tech shirt. Last year, someone at work had a certificate for free entry they couldn't use and I was the beneficiary. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Super marathon. The free stuff was great, but above and beyond that, it was superbly run.<br><br>
ETA: It's brooks again this year.

Yea, I won't be able to run it this year. It's a week or two before Chicago, which I've already signed up to run.<br><br>
Akron runs right by my house around mile 23.5 or so. I've run it three times now, including my first. And I agree, it's organized rather well. Enjoyable race.

Eastbay had my beloved Nimbus VIIs on sale quite awhile ago, for about $50 (they are normally $110-120) - I bought 3 pairs, I should have bought 6!
