We believe in the power of running.

Founded in 1991, Pacers Running is driven by our core principle to help as many people as possible through running. Our team delivers exceptional customer service and brings a passion to connect with people from all abilities and to help them at whatever part of the running journey they may be on.

If this sounds like you, let's talk.

What do you need to work at Pacers? A love for running and helping others, great customer service skills, and the ability to work nights, weekends, and some holidays. Experience in running retail is a plus.

At Pacers Running, inclusivity and respect for everyone—our team, customers, and community—are what we’re all about. We strive to create an environment that values different backgrounds and perspectives, leading us to be recognized in the top 5% of outdoor industry employers for our DEI commitment. Our CEO even snagged the Straight Ally award from the Washington Blade!

We know there’s always more work to do in the running world and we’re all in for making running and our space welcoming for everyone.
