The Asics GT-1000 2 IS YOUR October Footwear PRODUCT OF THE MONTH

Pink Ribbon GT-1000 2   Men's GT-1000 2

Making a repeat appearance is the GT-1000 PR

ASICS has teamed up with Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women, a charitable services fund of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), to help provide assistance to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.
From October 1 to October 31, 2013, ASICS America will support the fi ght against breast cancer by donating $2.00 per pair of shoes, and $1.00 for every bra and pair of socks sold, with a guaranteed donation of $100,000, up to $125,000, from specially marked ASICS products made available in retail stores nationwide. With this project, ASICS hopes to help all women experience the feeling of living with a sound mind, in a sound body.

NEW IN THE GT-1000 2

Improved Forefoot Flexibility thanks to thinner, and more numerous flexgrooves under the forefoot. Transition at toe-off also benefits from this.
Full-Blown Rubber Outsole boosts comfort and bounce-back
Increased Rearfoot GEL Cushioning for even more shock absorption and comfort
Full-Length SpEVA 55 Lasting provides greatly improved underfoot feel and comfort


SpEVA Midsole Material adds bounce to the ride, adding softness/comfort, but without feeling "mushy"
DuoMax A dual-density midsole provides support and stability to overpronators
Trustic System provides midfoot structural integrity while reducing weight
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning reduces shock during impact and toe-off phase
Guidance Line A vertical flex groove on the outsole decouples along the line of your step for enhanced gait efficiency
Reinforced Vamp Vamp mesh durability is increased by the addition of a thin, seamless underlay
Open Upper Mesh provides added comfort and breathability
AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability

Friday-to-Friday Fame

If you could have your name up in lights, wouldn't you want to see it?  
If someone could make you famous for a week, would you be interested?

Starting tomorrow, Saturday October 5, we are going to make you that offer.  
Here's how it works:

1.  You RACE in one of our Capital City Runners singlets or shirts (the ones printed with Capital City Runners on the front) on a Saturday or Sunday

2.  You send us a picture by the immediately following WEDNESDAY

3.  From all the pictures submitted Capital City Runners will choose one to be place on the web site's home page for ONE WEEK beginning that Friday.

4.  If your picture is chosen to be on the web site, you also earn a FIVE percent (5%) discount to use on any one purchase during the following week.

October Apparel Product of the Month: adidas AKTIV Pink Ribbon apparel for women

The adidas AKTIV "Pink Ribbon" line of apparel for women carries all of the same high quality features you have come to expect from any adidas product.  In addition, a percentage of profits from designated pieces in the AKTIV line benefit charity.

The AKTIV Against Cancer Foundation was founded by the late Grete Waitz and Helle Aanesen to help prevent and aid in the treatment of cancer and other diseases.  adidas has donated, because of the line, over $500,000 in 2011 alone. The line was started in 2009 by Grete Waitz as part of a long term partnership. Some feel that the work with AKTIV kept Grete Waitz alive even longer, during her fight with cancer.
