JACKRABBIT GUIDE TO SHOPPING THE RACE EXPO

NAVIGATING THE RACE EXPO

Nothing is more exciting for a runner geek (yeah, we’re there with you) than to take a stroll through the magic of a marathon expo. 

The New York expo takes this euphoria to a whole new level. Pack an extra pair of comfortable run shoes, because you’re going to need them as you navigate the halls of the Javitts Center to collect your race gear.

Shopping the expo is a marathon event in itself. While you’re taking in race fever, make sure you check out the limited edition New York race shoes and apparel. JackRabbit has collaborated with some of our favorite brands to create some unique New York styles and apparel for you to remember your time running New York.

Quantities are limited and unique to the race, so stock up before they’re gone for ever! 

JACKRABBIT GOODIES AT THE EXPO

JackRabbit Booth: #753 :Come visit us at the JackRabbit booth for more than just a high five (we’ll have those too, and they’re free!) 

Look for the big red hanging sign proclaiming "Start Your Run Here!" The Expo runs November 1st through the 3rd at: Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Hall 3B, 11th Avenue at West 35th Street.

We’ll be featuring our best tech gadgets, a wall of socks that will impress, and Currex insoles to keep your arches happy.

Alongside, we’re bringing along all you could ever need for race nutrition and portable hydration gear and drinks. We’re also bringing along NY branded gear, so you can celebrate the race with a classy tee you and your support crew can wear with pride. 

RECOVERY AT THE EXPO

Think past the marathon and onto how you’re going to recover!  There is nothing that makes you feel more alive than a post race leg burn as you descend stairs (and there are plenty of those in New York!)

We’ll have more recovery items at the Expo Store than you can shake a stick at. Make sure you pick up a pair of Oofos recovery slides which your plantars will surely thank you for!  We know, ours thank us every day for wearing them.

Check out our other suggestions and tips for post-race.

What makes the NY marathon experience even more special are the limited edition New York shoes that become available for a limited time. 

We’ve done the hard work for you (after all, you’ve done the training) and in JackRabbit stores we’ll have the official limited New York shoes and grear from brands such as New Balance, Adidas, Saucony, Oofos and Altra alongside unique NYC apparel to reflect your race day enthusiasm.
