Stock up For Winter

If you’re planning on running this winter and looking to stock up on winter gear, it’s a great time to purchase a GP Run/Walk Club membership if you haven’t already.

Important! The membership is only good for the CALENDAR YEAR. Meaning, it’s only worth purchasing now if you are going to spend a fair bit between now and the end of December. Otherwise, wait for the 2018 memberships later in December.

You will receive a PDF copy of the membership confirmation upon registration – bring this with you when you shop!

The locations currently honouring our discounts are:

  • 15% off Running/Walking Footwear & Apparel at Ernie’s Sports Experts
  • 15% off Running/Walking Footwear & Apparel at Intersport
  • 10% off All Regular Price Items at Walk, Run & More
