Anniversary Sale Deals

Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite items from the sale, but here are some of the broader sales from top brands we know you trust:

Altra Via Olympus 2 Road Running Shoes — Men’s & Women’s: $124 (25% Off)

Altra Via Olympus 2 trail running shoe

Altra’s most cushioned shoes ride 33mm high, but the Via Olympus 2 is still a zero-drop road shoe. The midsoles are plump with Altra EGO MAX foam that’s both squishier and lighter than the first iteration. Tweaks to the molded heel collars help secure the shoe around your foot.

They have OrthoLite X55 footbeds for support and continue the rocker shape for a better toe-off that can feel like you’re getting a push forward with each stride.

Select Altra running shoes are 25% off.

Swiftland 5″ Running Shorts — Men’s & Women’s: $42 (30% Off)

REI Swiftlnd 5 inch running shorts

REI’s Swiftland shorts are made to wick, breathe, and stretch four ways. That kind of performance helps when you’re out on long trail runs. The shorts have a mesh liner, two drop-in pockets, and a secure zip pocket. A wide waistband should lay flat and more comfortably against your body, while the drawcord closure helps secure the fit.

Lastly, you’ll find the shorts have flat seams and a few reflective hits for added visibility in low light.

All REI Swiftland running apparel is 30% off.

Garmin fenix 7X Pro Solar Edition Running Watch: $700 ($200 Off)

Garmin fenix 7X Pro Solar

You may want to click through and go directly to REI for all of this watch’s features, but the big thing to note is the Power Glass solar charging lens. In smartwatch mode, the lens helps the watch run up to 37 days if it charges in direct sunlight for 3 hours a day. In GPS mode, solar charging can extend the battery life by up to 122 hrs.

The navigation sensors use multi-band GPS with SatIQ tech for accuracy (and battery savings) and you can download maps to help keep you on course with prompts.

Watch sensors can also monitor your health through sleep tracking, heart rate variability (HRV), and Pulse Ox. These can inform the recovery tracking reported each morning. Other new scoring features will measure your performance on ascent or you can check an overall endurance score based on combined data from multiple workouts and athletic pursuits.

Nathan Limitless Run 6L Hydration Sling: $68 (25% Off)

Nathan Limitless Run 6L Hydration Sling

This 6L hydration sling is made to keep you fueled when a vest is too much and a handheld isn’t enough. This simple design lets you toss a bladder over a shoulder and pull it snugly against your body to reduce bouncing. Its shoulder strap is padded with foam so the load doesn’t rub you the wrong way.

The sling’s main section holds a 25-ounce soft flask with a hose and has a compression flap and drawstring closure to secure it. You can stash a wallet and keys in the zippered pocket and snacks in the stretch stash pocket. A spare layer or other add-ons can be daisy-chained onto the back of the bag.

Nathan’s Limitless Run Sling comes in 2L and 8L models and all of the brand’s packs, vest, and other accessories are 25% off.

Smartwool Performance Run Targeted Cushion Low Ankle Socks — Men’s & Women’s: $14 (25%Off)

Smartwool Performance Run Targeted Cushion Low Ankle Socks

All Smartwool socks are 25% off during this sale, but we chose the Run Targeted Cushion Low Ankle as an example of the Indestructawool zones, fit system, and mesh spots for airflow you’ll find throughout the Run line. The merino wool and nylon blend helps the socks wick faster and last longer while preserving the wool’s odor-resistant traits. Lastly, the toes are nearly seamless, and an Achilles tab helps prevent the sock from slipping into shoes.

Janji Women’s Circa Daily Muscle Tank Top & Men’s T-Shirt: From $32 (25% Off)

Janji Women's Circa Daily Muscle Tank Top & Men's T-Shirt

For runs (and workouts), the Circa Daily tops offer performance with a soft feel. The quick-dry fabrics made with mostly bio-based fibers feel soft against the skin while wicking sweat away from your body. Similarly, strategic seams help reduce the chances of chafing. The women’s Circa Daily tank top is slightly cropped to rest at or below the waist.

All Janji running tops are 25% off.

The North Face Wander 2.0 Joggers: $52 (25% Off)

The North Face Wander 2.0 Joggers

These Standard-fit joggers use a mostly recycled polyester that moves moisture out and has a water-repellent finish. The fabric stretches and can withstand some abrasion.

For comfort, the seams are behind the knees. An elastic waistband and lay-flat drawcord let you adjust the fit, and there is elastic at the leg openings, too. For stashing things, the joggers have two hand pockets, a concealed-zip back pocket, and an internal zippered pocket.

Saucony Peregrine 14 Trail-Running Shoes — Men’s & Women’s: $98 (30% Off)

Saucony Peregrine 14

Saucony created a softer blend of its PWRRUN cushioning for the 14s than it used in previous models. The PWRTRAC rubber outsoles are tacky and have different-sized 5mm lugs extending to the edges. The outsoles have a center cutout with no tread that provides flex and keeps mud or debris from clogging things. Don’t worry, there’s still a rock plate above.

Heel drop: 4 mm (28mm/24mm). All Saucony running shoes are marked down 30% during this sale.

Superfeet & CURREX Running Insoles: From $42 (25% Off)

Running Insoles REI Sale

Superfeet uses a patented Adaptive Comfort Technology and two layers of foam to flex with your foot for a more efficient heel-to-toe turnover. It uses a wicking layer on top to help feet stay dry and resist blisters (and odor build-up).

CURREX insoles combine nylon, poron, and foam for durability, impact absorption, and moisture-wicking performance. The arches are designed to stay in contact with your foot, whether running or standing. Lastly, the insoles’ decoupled heels can help reduce pronation.

Best suited to running on softer ground, the Speedcross is big on grip and has a welded, close-fitting upper for a closer connection to the trails.

Familiar details include the brand’s SensiFit construction, Quicklace closures, and the chunky Mud Contragrip rubber outsoles. The midsoles use a high-rebound compound for an emphasis on energy return and cushioning while offering long-term durability.
