Hit the streets on the second Tuesday of every month with Shack Track & Field, a free community fitness club powered by Shake Shack.

Runs are 3-5 miles and open to all ages and abilities.

Hot tip: when you wear your performance tee to the run, get a free cup or cone of frozen custard on us.

Beer here! Runs end with a free drink back at the Shack.
