Description

This summer, #MOVEWITHASICS Run Club will be taking off from our recently opened 5th Ave flagship location! We will be taking to the streets every Wednesday at 6.30pm, and Saturday at 8.00am

Leaving from our store on 47th and 5th (579 5th Ave), and lead by ASICS 5th Ave staff, runs will vary in length, distance and speed.
