Get Fit with Local Restaurants

September 27, 2013

Shake Shack is initiating a new running club. The New York-based chain will soon launch Shack Track & Field, a running club that ends its hour-long workout with a social at Shake Shack Dupont Circle. The club will meet at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month, beginning Oct. 8, at Pacers Logan Circle (1427 P St. NW). Pacers will allow runners to check bags, which will then be delivered to them at Shake Shack. Those who buy a $10 Shack Track & Field T-shirt will receive a coupon for a free drink after each meeting. The club is the brainchild of Shake Shack Area Director Allan Ng, who’s also an avid runner.

Shake Shack is not the only restaurant to start a running club. The Heights organizes hour-long runs Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. that culminate in a discounted brunch at the Columbia Heights restaurant.

Meanwhile, Poste Moderne Brasserie continues to host Pilates on the Patio, with one last fall session Saturday at 10 a.m. For $24, pilates instructor Chauna Bryant, a former Poste employee, teaches a 45-minute class, which is followed by a complimentary glass of sparking wine. A post-pilates brunch menu is also available.

Lastly, Bardo Brewpub organizes bimonthly bike rides that tour D.C.’s breweries (and lone distillery). The next one is an Oktoberfest brewery tour Saturday at 1 p.m. Bikers should meet at the Metropolitan Branch Trail and Brookland-Catholic University Metro station. From there, the group will head to DC Brau, the Arboretum, and New Columbia Distillers for tours and tastings. The event ends at Bardo around 4 p.m.
