We offer easy pickup just outside the store or free local delivery in Beverly/Morgan Park and the surrounding area.

Gift Baskets for Neighbors

We’ve seen many wonderful acts of kindness over the past few weeks, with neighbors helping neighbors in a variety of ways. If you’d like to send a no-contact gift to a neighbor who is trying to stay active, let us know! We’ve put together some great walking and running baskets to leave on a doorstep of your choice.

Online Gift Certificates

You can purchase a gift certificate on our website anytime! In fact, they are a great way to support small independent businesses during this challenging time.

Free Training Program & Resources for New Runners

Sheltering in place doesn’t mean sitting on the couch! Walking and running is an ideal way to stay active. If you’re just getting started, check out our free Walk to Run program. We also have a great online library of articles about running.

The Eagle Contest

All our local runners, please continue doing the Eagle during this time and log it through Strava. All who do will be entered to win a pair of OOFOS. We will draw the winner once the order has been lifted.
