Wednesday Night Running Club!

Wednesday Night Running Club is up and operational on the UES! We meet at the store on 85th and Lex a bit before 7 pm on Wednesday nights for our conversationally paced 3-5 mile run in Central Park. Come on by and meet runners from our staff as well as runners in your community. All abilities are welcome; the emphasis is on fun, rather than speed. Runs are led by our staff and will meet rain or shine. Runners can leave their gear at the store, as we will be returning before close so that you can retrieve it.
Come on by and run with us!

The Bunny is Coming!

Construction has begun on our new uptown store! This week, a crew of workers began to make the first changes to the store front that will become JackRabbit Sports on Lexington Ave. The workers began by removing the last vestiges of Ricky's and Hippototamus, with crowbars and hammers. Out with the lime green walls and orange hippos and in with the bunny! Here are some pics of the initial demolition.
