The Sneaker Factory Run Down

If you are wondering what’s going on these days in your local running community and at Sneaker Factory I have the run down for you.

There is a lot going on!I know Moira, we are excited about this too.

We will start with our oldest and coolest store in Millburn.

We are happy to announce that the newly established group run on Saturday mornings at 9AM is BOOMING! This past Saturday we had 15 runners and expect the numbers to climb through the winter and into spring as Marathon and Half Marathon training rev up.

Also at the Millburn store this Saturday come see Dr. Levy to have your footstrike analyzed by one of the top podiatrists in the area.  Dr. Jessica Levy from Advanced Performance and Rehabilitation Center will give us information about your feet that will help us find you the perfect fitting pair of running shoes!
Don’t miss this great opportunity to get a free opinion from one of the area’s top medical professionals!

Next up is our Basking Ridge location. If you need help with what to wear on the run, this is the place to go! Fashionista and awesome runner Kim Turlip is there to guide you through the do’s and don’ts of your running outfit. She will not only make sure you have the right gear to face any weather conditions, but that you look darn good doing it!

Also new to Basking Ridge, the Wednesday night group run! 6PM every Wednesday night, meet up with Joe the store Manager and run anywhere from 3 to 6 miles. All paces welcome!! No matter the weather Joe is ready to get out there and tackle the miles with anyone who is willing to join. If you are training for a spring race here is a great excuse to get out there and brave the dark and the elements. Don’t go it alone!!

And last but not least the Jersey Shore store…No not that Jersey Shore… this Jersey Shore:

Our newest location in Long Branch – Pier Village!

There is a lot going on down in Long Branch. Lets start with the next 3 Saturdays…

And the last Sunday in February:

And as usual group runs from our Long Branch store: Wednesday nights at 6:30 and Thursday nights at 6:00. 4-6 Miles and all paces welcome!! Even the cast of the Jersey Shore is welcome to stop by! Our own Vinnie Petracco and his beautiful wife Jill will do their best to make them feel welcome.
